"Tamarack Town: Mines - People - Places," by Paul T. Steele (1982)
This book deals with people in the Tamarack section of what later became Calumet. The book contains lists of names and addresses of people from the 1903 and 1916 Houghton County directories for South Tamarack and North Tamarack and lists of the Tamarack Mining Company employees from the same two years. Please do not request a search unless there is some connection to Tamarack Town or the Tamarack Mines. The book does not have information about people from Calumet, Red Jacket, Osceola, Laurium other adjacent locations.Joseph Martin
