MGEX 125th Anniversary
MGEX announced the commencement of The MGEXHistory Project. The Exchange, founded on October 19, 1881, celebrated its history in October 2006. To commemorate this milestone, the MGEX Board of Directors established the 125th Commemoration Commission Committee whose objectives were to chronicle the history of the Exchange, its people and organizations, and to create awareness of the Exchange’s role in the growth and development of commerce in the upper Midwest.
Photographs from the MGEX Photograph Collection are available for purchase. Select images from the historic archives as well as photographs taken at various 125th Anniversary events are available. Follow this link to view the catalogs and ordering information.
