Curti, Merle Eugene, 1897- "Isaac P. Walker: reformer in mid-century politics"

Isaac P. Walker: Reformer in Mid-Century Politics: The author's stated purpose of this article about one of Wisconsin's first senators, Isaac Pigeon Walker (1815-1872) is to save him from oblivion. Walker moved to Milwaukee in 1841 after being involved in Illinois politics to help begin his brother's political career (George Walker was elected mayor of Milwaukee in 1851). Also mentioned in the article is Walker's involvement in voting rights in the Wisconsin territory, land reform both in Wisconsin and in other areas of the United States, the prohibition of slavery in new territories, and his close relationship with the Democratic party in Wisconsin.
