'Emma Helen Blair (September 12, 1851 – September 25, 1911) was a United States historian, journalist and editor, whose most notable work was a monumental documentary history of the Philippines.
Her last work was the translation and editing of documents for The Indian Tribes of the Upper Mississippi Valley and Region of the Great Lakes (2 vols., 1911–1912).
According to her obituary in the Madison Democrat, 'Miss Blair became by dint of native ability and years of preparatory toil one of the most expert historical editors in the country.'

'Nicolas Perrot (c.1644–1717), a French explorer, fur trader, and diplomat, was one of the first European men to travel in the Upper Mississippi Valley, in what is now Wisconsin and Minnesota.'
