   For many years there had been uncertainty regarding the bound-
aries in Lakes Michigan and Superior. A conference of representa-
tives of the Governors of Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin was
held October 30, 1946 with the purpose of starting a movement to
define these boundaries. As a result of this and subsequent con-
ferences, compacts were prepared, ratified by the respective legisla-
tures and confirmed by Congress. The Wisconsin members of the
Joint Boundary Survey Commission were appointed by Acting Gov-
ernor Rennebohm, April 28, 1948.
  Pursuant to the ratification of a compact establishing the bound-
aries on Lakes Michigan and Superior between the states of Michi-
gan, Minnesota and Wisconsin by Chapter 222, Laws of 1947,
2 engineers were appointed to survey the reference points on the
shores of the lakes. Each shore point was precisely located by latitude
and longitude. A bronze monument set in concrete was then placed
along the 2 reference monuments. A detailed topographic map was
made of each shore point area and photographs were taken of the
monuments. The field notes, geodetic computations, maps and photo-
graphs are now in the office of the Wisconsin Secretary of State.
  The boundary between Wisconsin and Minnesota in the Duluth-
Superior harbor has been defined and all computations made. It
awaits the ratification of a compact between Minnesota and Wiscon-
sin. This segment, when approved, will complete the boundary line
between Wisconsin and Minnesota.
