This is a small, artificial collection mostly of stamped and stampless covers to and from Michigan cities and villages, primarily from Ionia County in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Compiled by Harvey Lemmen, the items in the collection fall mostly within the date range of 1843 to 1916, although newspaper articles on Ionia County postal history and auxiliary records pertaining to the collection fall within the date range of 1956 to 2000. Ten items of correspondence (letters and postcards) are contained within the collection.
