Wisconsin Historical Collections was published from 1855 to 1915 in order to share historical documents, original records, and scholarly essays about Wisconsin's past.
Its 20 large volumes contain slightly more than 1,000 such items, on just under 10,000 pages.
Its editors (Lyman C. Draper and Reuben G. Thwaites) commissioned hundreds of memoirs by pioneer settlers, conducted dozens of interviews, and reprinted primary sources from the Society archives, newspapers, and other collections.
