New ‘Voyageur’ issue marks transition from Goff to Voelker

Voyageur: Northeast Wisconsin’s Historical Review, has just published its Summer/Fall 2015 issue. Included are articles on James Doty and early Wisconsin politics; the first documented commercial sawmill in Wisconsin (including discussion of negotiations with the Menominee Nation); the decline of a mission on the Stockbridge-Munsee reservation; a Dutch émigré’s adventures in 19th century Green Bay; and a controversy over a road-building project in New Franken.

The magazine, in its 32nd year, is published cooperatively by the Brown County Historical Society and UWGB. Associate Prof. David Voelker (Humanistic Studies/History) currently edits the magazine, having recently replaced emerita faculty member Victoria Goff, who served as editor for 20 years. The senior art director for this issue was Toni Damkoehler (Art and Design/Design Arts). Several UWGB students were involved in the production as graphic designers and editorial interns, and a number of faculty and staff serve on the Editorial Committee. If you are interested in ordering a copy of the magazine or would like to subscribe, call or email Voyageur‘s manager, Kent Crain, at 920-465-2446 or voyageur@uwgb.edu.
