The Michigan Hemingway Society is made up of university professors, writers, high school teachers, fly fishers, journalists, and all kinds of other people who are interested in exploring the life and body of literature created by this Nobel prize-winning author.
Goals and objectives of the group include:
- To encourage the study of Hemingway's relationship to Michigan in his life and work
- To collect, interpret and preserve artifacts, memorabilia and places connected with Hemingway
- To make available to the public the knowledge and interpretations of Hemingway scholars and researchers
- To sponsor annual Hemingway weekends in Petoskey where he spent his boyhood summers and was inspired to use northern Michigan people, settings and incidents as a basis for his early writing (especially the Nick Adams stories)
- To publish literary materials illuminating Hemingway's life and work
- To publish such materials as might help researchers locate the places in northern Michigan which figure into Hemingway's life and fiction
- To support the archival and exhibition capability of the Clarke Historical Library at Central Michigan University, official institutional home of the Michigan Hemingway Society; and to support the acquisition of additional Hemingway related materials through the Hemingway Endowment.
