Wisconsin's Own Oscars

Dateline: Madison, 1940. There's Oscar Mayer, whose early refridgerator truck shown here appears to owe something in its design to Milwaukee's Brooks Stevens. And Oscar Morris, a Republican state senator who also who ran the Milwaukee Sentinel, and Oscar Rennebohm, of drugstore fame.
