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. And of course there are the many real Oscar winners documented in the collections of the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research.
