In celebration of Wisconsin's Sesquicentennial, the University of Wisconsin General Library System and the State Historical Society of Wisconsin have collaborated to provide this resource. It is brimming with primary source data on the history and culture of the state. Organized chronologically into thirteen sections covering selected years from 1835 to 1949, and drawing on the considerable holdings of the sponsoring institutions, it contains such gems as full text of Reuben Gold Thwaites' History of the University of Wisconsin, Increase A. Lapham's A Winter's Journey from Milwaukee to Green Bay, 1843, a chapter from John Muir's The Story of My Boyhood and Youth, and full text of Charles McCarthy's The Wisconsin Idea. Sections include early lumbering, women in Wisconsin, early Madison, and galleries of people, places, the University of Wisconsin, and miscellaneous items. The site clearly demonstrates with power and elegance a successful library/historical society collaboration.
