In this brief cartographic history of the last Great Lake to be discovered, Carl Kupfer will show why it took over 240 years its first sighting to produce accurate maps of its shorelines and related geographical features. This cartographic odyssey will include an examination of early manuscript maps, printed amps, charts, surveys, instruments and tools of the trade.
