Governors, governors, governors
Certain images of our leaders stick in our minds. There's the Victorian dignity of the one-armed Gov. Lucius Fairchild (he lost his other one at the Battle of Gettysburg), the moral intensity of Fighting Bob La Follette, the goofy grin of his son Gov. Phil, and the unmistakable charisma of Gov. Tommy Thompson . For portraits of all Wisconsin's governors (well, almost all of them), visit our Museum's Online Painting Collection.
