Biographical Sketches



From time to time we get E-mails from researchers who want copies of these biographies. While they are available for ordering from the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, we DO NOT recommend that you use the Society's expensive service. They charge an outrageous $10 per copy! Frank and I will gladly make copies for you for just the cost of the copies and postage (and we will include a copy of the book's title page, too); $2 generally covers it. Feel free to ask us to help you. Send an E-mail to us. If you don't use the Society's service, maybe they will get the hint!
