Book description
On an autumn day in 1845, a conversation between two pioneers sparked an idea that has grown into one of Wisconsin's most cherished institutions--the Wisconsin Historical Society, older by two years than the state itself. Explore the storied history of this grand Wisconsin treasure--from the Society's earliest days, as pioneers worked to record history even as it was happening; to the Society's struggles to weather the Great Depression and World War II; and its landmark efforts to record the most important social and political movements of our times.

The Wisconsin Historical Society has grown from a small gathering of pioneers into a nationally renowned organization that serves 3 million people each year. Yet the basic mission of the Society has remained largely unchanged: to collect, preserve, and share the stories of Wisconsin, from every walk of life, in every corner of the state. The story behind the Society's creation is a uniquely Wisconsin story--one that belongs to all who call Wisconsin home.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0870206915, Hardcover)

Explore the storied history of this grand Wisconsin treasure – the Wisconsin Historical Society, older than the state itself. From the Society’s earliest days as pioneers worked to record history even as it was happening, to its struggles to weather the Great Depression, and its landmark efforts to record the most important social and political movements of our times. From its very start, the Society has worked to “treasure up” the stories of people from every walk of life, in every corner of the state. The story behind the Wisconsin Historical Society is a uniquely Wisconsin story – one that belongs to all who call Wisconsin home.
