Constitution of the Wisconsin Natural History Society, 1848.


Comprising many of the most prominent names in Wisconsin's scientific community, the Natural History Society formed in 1848. Devoting themselves to the mutual improvement of knowledge in the natural sciences, Association members produced botanical, ethnological, and biological reports, and went on to become the driving force behind the Milwaukee Public Museum.
