Wisconsin 101: Local History with Objects

Broman will describe the design and aims of Wisconsin 101, which presents local histories on a browsable statewide platform. From soda bottled in Whitefish Bay in the 1920s, to a dam fragment erected in the Kickapoo River Valley in the 1930s, to bowling pins manufactured in Antigo in the 1960s, visitors to our web site can discover all kinds of objects that offer new perspectives on the people, places and ideas of our state’s past. We will also discuss the virtues and challenges of doing local history on a statewide basis.

Dates and locations to be announced.
