The Wisconsin Historical Society Speakers Bureau offers an exciting opportunity for our historians, curators and authors to visit your community and share the stories of our great state.

Richard Haney, a professional historian, was only four years old when the telegram arrived at his family's home in Janesville, WI. That moment, when Haney learned of his father's death in the final months of fighting, changed his and his mother's life forever. His story explores the impact of war on an American family. Haney illuminates life on the home front in small-town America and describes how profoundly the war changed such communities.
