Overview

In Hungarians in Michigan Eva V. Huseby-Darvas examines six distinct migrant streams that contributed to the formation of Michigan's Hungarian communities. From early rural immigrants, who hoped to save enough to return home with the means to make their futures less economically difficult, to urban, post-Iron Curtain immigrants trying to build new lives in the United States, Hungarians have left their mark on Michigan's history. Foods, holidays, festivals, church socials, and similar events help to maintain and perpetuate a culture that is neither Hungarian nor American, but a specific Michigan-style American Hungarian.
