Wisconsin Men of Progress

Compendium of biographies of important Wisconsin men around the turn of the twentieth century

Description

Home to over 2 million people in 1900, Wisconsin was an important part of the rapidly industrialized Midwest. This database is a collection of brief portraits and biographies of important men of the state. A large compendium, it provides information on civic, political and business leaders of the state at the end of the nineteenth century. It also includes some members of the clergy, and a small number of musical and artistic figures. Additionally, a brief historical introduction precedes the biographies. For researchers of Wisconsin ancestors, this can be an illuminating source of information.
