Peer into the faces as well as the dress presented in these outstanding photographs and see the early ethnic flavor of Wisconsin jump out at you.
Thomas Ramstack is a retired special education teacher for Milwaukee Public Schools. He holds bachelor’s degrees in history and psychology from the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point, as well as a master’s degree in special education from Cardinal Stritch University. He has had a long fascination with that unique aspect of Wisconsin’s history which focuses on the ethnic history of our state. Through these images, Ramstack hopes modern-day residents, too, might capture something of the life experiences of the Wisconsin’s early European and Yankee inhabitants.
