Covid-19 MKE

The project aims to document how the Milwaukee area is experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. It was built by students in Professor Christopher D. Cantwell’s “Local History Research Methods” class and is hosted by the Golda Meir Library at UWM. All of the material on the site, however, was contributed by members of the greater Milwaukee community. Your contribution is welcome.
