PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) -- A Port Huron man has been honored by the state for his work collecting data on Michigan's historical markers.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports that Jim Brennan has spent almost 20 years collecting photographs and information on about 1,700 markers. He makes the information available for free on his website www.michmarkers.com. [The link is below.]

The city's information technology director recently received the 2013 Gov. John B. Swainson Award by the Michigan Historical Commission for his work. The award honors state, county and municipal employees who go beyond their jobs to help preserve Michigan's history.
