Italian Americans remember their childhoods in Milwaukee

Milwaukee childhoods, Italian style

Large numbers of Italians began settling in Milwaukee in the early twentieth century. Although Italians lived all over the city, most lived either near the Bay View rolling mill on the South Shore or in the Third Ward. This site, part of the Children in Urban America Project, consists of reminiscences of Italian American men and women who grew up in Milwaukee between 1900 and 1940.
