Over 2,150 individuals from 47 states and four countries are members of The Great Lakes Historical Society. Without a doubt, what brings this diverse group of individuals together is our award-winning quarterly journal, Inland Seas®. Published continuously since 1945, this historical journal brings to life many facets of Great Lakes history. From the Edmund Fitzgerald to recreational sailing, our writers depict events and experiences that capture the essence of Great Lakes history. Our writers also present their research in a narrative style that does not lose the reader in footnotes and arcane points of historical minutia.
