Index of 1970 issues of Michigan Natural Resources Magazine

In 1970: John Gray was editor, and Russell McKee was associate editor, Charles Schafer was art director, with additional illustrations by Ozz Warbach (who reached 30 years of content with the July-August 1970 issue) and Jim Campbell.

This year Russell McKee's end page essays changed name from "The Caboose" (as it was called most issues in 1969) to "The Book End"

Another precedent was set this year also, in the Jan-Feb issue when John Gray's editorial column "The Meander Line" included the first of what would be many comments in opposition to "Project Sanguine", later re branded and better known as "ELF", the US Navy's attempt to build a very large underground antenna array in nor then Wisconsin and the UP for communication with nuclear submarines. That Gray was able to voice this opposition reflects either a strong conviction and editorial autonomy or official opposition by the State of Michigan; perhaps both. Such would become unthinkable in the final years of the magazine under the politicized Engler regime.
