Marguerite Gahagan

Marguerite Gahagan was a news writer in the early 50's when she headed to northern Michigan to start her own newspaper, The North Woods Call. After a couple of years, she settled in Roscommon, Michigan. From her cabin in the woods, Margureite lived with her forest friends and wrote about their lives. Every other week she publsihed Michigan's foremost paper about Michigan's conservation issues. She sold the paper to Glen Shepard in the late 60's. Shep still publishes what Marguerite started, carrying on that part of her legacy. Gahagan Preserve carries on the other part of her legacy.
Each month re-publishes one of Marguerites Pine Whisper columns. The column discribes what was happening outside to cabin fifty years ago.
