PREFACE



In issuing the "Memoirs of Milwaukee County," the pubhshers take
the preface as a means of acknowledging obligation to many who have
so cordially co-operated in their preparation. Whatever of excel-
lence is attained by these volumes may be attributed primarily to Lieut.-
Col. Jerome A. Watrous, whose intelligent direction and courteous sug-
gestions have been unfailing. Colonel Watrous, editor-in-chief of
the historical volume, has had a long and eminent career familiar to the
people of Milwaukee county. A native of the Empire State, he became
a resident of Wisconsin at an early age, and throughout the greater
part of his life has been identified with the literature and journalism of
the state. In the Civil war he saw much active service, enlisting as a
private in 1861, and finishing as adjutant-general of the "Iron Brigade"
on the staff of Brig.-Gen. John A. Kellogg. After the close of hos-
tilities he served a term in the state legislature, at the end of which he
resumed journalistic work and in 1879 became one of the editors and
proprietors of the Milwaukee Telegraph. For fifteen years he acted as
•editor of that paper, and a part of the time was also collector of cus-
toms for the Milwaukee district. At the opening of the Spanish-Ameri-
can war, Colonel Watrous tendered his services to both the governor
and the president, and June 15, 1898, was commissioned major in the
regular army. He served on the Atlantic coast until June, 1899, ^^''^^
then made chief paymaster of the Department of the Columbia, and the
following year he was assigned to duty at Manila. Six months later
he was ordered to the Department of the Visayas, and in De-
cember, 1901, wdien the four departments were consolidated into two,
he became chief paymaster. Department of the South Philippines, on the
staff of Maj.-Gen. J. T. Wade. In September, 1904. he was pro-
moted to lieutenant-colonel. United States Army, and retired for age.
Since then he has followed his calling as a writer and now resides at
Whitewater, Wis.

Hon. George W. Peck, who has edited the chapter on "Literature
and Journalism," is also a New Yorker by birth, but came to Wisconsin
with his parents in 1841, when about one year old. He learned the



4 PREFACE

printer's trade and worked on papers in Ripon, La Crosse, and Madison.
He served in the Civil war with a Wisconsin cavalry regiment. In
1879 he began in La Crosse the publication of "Peck's Sun," a w^eekly
paper devoted to humor. In 1880 he moved to Milwaukee, where his
serial, "Peck's Bad Boy," brought him and his paper into prominence
and prosperity. In 1890 he was elected mayor of Milwaukee on the
Democratic ticket, and in the fall of the same year was elected gov-
ernor of the state, the Democrats carrying both the legislature and the
state ticket. He was renominated and re-elected in 1892 and was
again renominated in 1894, but was defeated in the election of that fall,
being engulfed by the Republican tidal wave of that year. Ten years
later he was again nominated for governor, but went down in defeat
with his ticket, although he led it by thousands of votes. He has the
distinction of being the only man nominated for governor four times
in Wisconsin. Governor Peck is one of the most highly esteemed resi-
dents of Milwaukee, where he still devotes his time to literary work.

Dr. Solon Marks, of gallant record as an army surgeon during
the Civil war, and as an eminent physician and surgeon in the days of
peace, has edited for this work the chapter upon "The Medical Pro-
fession." Dr. Marks came to Wisconsin from Vermont in 1848, before
he had commenced the study of medicine. In 1853 he graduated at
Rush Medical College, Chicago, practiced at Jefferson, Wis., until 1856,.
and then located in Milwaukee. During the war he served as an army
surgeon, and upon resuming private practice he won for himself a
wide reputation in his professional work. He has served as president
of the State Board of Health, the State Medical Society, and the Board
of Pension examiners, and he has held the chair of military surgery in
the Wisconsin College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Marks is alsO'
an author of note upon subjects pertaining to the medical profession.

William G. Bruce, the secretary of the Merchants' and Manu-
facturers' Association of Milwaukee, has revised and edited the chap-
ter upon "Finance and Industries." Mr. Bruce is also a native-born
Milwaukeean, and the city of his birth has been the scene of his ex-
ceedingly active career. He early turned his attention to journalism
and was for many years connected with the Milwaukee Sentinel, both
in the business department and as a general contributor. In 1890 he
established the American School Board Journal, of which he is still
proprietor. He has also published text-books on school administration
and school architecture, and has become well-known in educational
circles as a writer and lecturer on the former topic. He has filled the
position of secretary of the Merchants' and Manufacturers' Associa-



PREFACE



tion since October, 1906, having been elected to that important posi-
tion on account of his activity in public affairs and his unusual abilitv



as an organizer.



The chapter entitled "Poles in Milwaukee," has been written bv
the Rev. Boleslaus E, Goral, than whom there is none more competent
to speak upon the history and traits of the people of his nationality.
Rev. Goral was born in German Poland and there received his elemen-
tary education. In 1889 he came to America, and during the ensuing
ten years devoted his time to classical, philosophical, and theological
studies. As priest, teacher, literateur. and a practical man of affairs,
he has gained distinction, and is widely known and recognized as an
able and patriotic Polish-x\merican citizen.

Acknowledgments are also due to George R. Gove, assistant sec-
retary of the Merchants' and IManufacturers' Association, to ]\Iessrs.
Burdick & Allen, Frank Gotschalk, and others for courtesies extended.

That the "Memoirs of Milwaukee County" may prove satisfactory
to our patrons, is the hope of The Publishers.
