Wisconsin Democratic Party Oral History Project interviews, 1982-1986.

Interviews with 37 former and current activists in the Democratic Party of Wisconsin concentrating particularly on the Party's building period between the end of World War II and the electoral successes in the late 1950s. Interviewees include former Progressives, former Socialists, pre-1945 Democrats, activists in farm and labor organizations, successful and unsuccessful candidates for office, local party workers, and party chairmen. Because so much of the party's leadership came from Dane and Milwaukee counties, interviewees come disproportionately from these areas. Each interview is accompanied by an abstract providing information on the contents and the tape location where topics are covered. Also present is one box of research materials. The interviews were conducted by Catherine Coberly and Jim Cavanaugh for the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. Interviewees are Gehrta Amlie, Bruno Bitker, Julia Bogholt, Laurie Carlson, James and Ruth Doyle, John and William Duffy, Thomas Fairchild, Gerald Flynn, Virginia and Henry Hart, Esther Kaplan, Esther and John Lawton, Virginia Lehman, Erich Lenz, Robert Lewis, Patrick J. Lucey, Henry Maier, Lucile Miller, John Moses, Philleo Nash, Gaylord Nelson, Frank Nikolay, Gretchen Pfankuchen, William Proxmire, David Rabinovitz, Henry Reuss, John Reynolds, Warren Sawall, Gloria and Milton Schneider, Carl Thompson, Mari Jo and Walter Henry Uphoff, and Floyd Wheeler.
