'Present at the Creation: The Old World Wisconsin Story'
John Krugler, author of the just-published "Creating Old World Wisconsin: The Struggle to Build an Outdoor History Museum of Ethnic Architecture," which chronicles the fascinating and complex origins of this outdoor museum, will present a 30-minute talk called "Present at the Creation: The Old World Wisconsin Story" in the museum store's Ramsey Barn Theater. Krugler's presentation coincides with the 37th anniversary of Old World Wisconsin's opening to the public on June 30, 1976. His talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session. Copies of his book will be available for sale, and the author will be available to sign copies. Krugler is a professor of early American history and public history at Marquette University.
