Book Report: Indiana, no, make that Wisconsin Jones


When I was a kid in a small Wisconsin grade school, one of my favorite subjects was Wisconsin history, taught to me by my sixth-grade teacher, Mrs. Lily Reich.

One of our texts was a book called "Men Who Made Wisconsin" or something like that.

The book contained brief profiles of famous folks from Badgerland.

I remember that one of these folks was the fellow who bred the famous silver mink, which was the greatest mink ever known (with my apologies to PETA).
