John Gurda: Made in Milwaukee, An Economic History of Brewtown

Milwaukee has made its living in a multitude of ways over the last 175 years. Growing from roots in shipping and grain-handling, the city became a manufacturing powerhouse, sending its products all over the globe. In recent years, service industries have claimed a larger place on the economic smorgasbord. From beer to gears and from hides to Harleys, “Made in Milwaukee” will offer a colorful and enlightening look at the people and products that have made Milwaukee famous.

Wednesday, April 15, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Sponsored by the Osher Institute for Lifelong Learning, the program is free and open to the public.
