Belgian American Research Collection
One of the country's largest concentrations of Walloon-speaking Belgians
is found in northeastern Wisconsin, resulting in a unique cultural and social
flavor. A pilot project was undertaken in 1975-1976 to establish a Belgian-
American Ethnic Resource Collection in the Special Collections Department
of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Cofrin Library. The objective was
to record the undocumented historical, social, and cultural legacy of this unique
ethnic group. Images of the farms as well as oral history interviews had
previously been digitized by the UWDCC. New materials include nine
in-depth architectural surveys maps, which were drawn to scale showing
the location (both past and present) of structures, gardens, orchards
fences, fields, driveways, etc, and include materials such as draft maps
and deeds, as well as a large collection of log structure images.
