Victoria Goff, associate professor of Communication and history, was the first speaker in the Brown County Library’s Local History Series on Oct. 1. Her topic, “Voyageur Magazine: 25 Years of History,” highlighted the history of the award-winning Voyageur magazine, which is celebrating its silver anniversary this year. Voyageur is published by UW-Green Bay in conjunction with the Brown County Historical Society. Founded in 1984 by former UW-Green Bay history professor Norbert Gaworek and George Nau Burridge, then president of the historical society, it has also had the help of many members of the campus community, including but not limited to David Voelker, Andrew Kersten, and Jerrold Rodesch (emeritus), history; William Laatch, geography; Jeff Benzow and Toni Damkoehler, graphics; Chris Style, art; Chris Sampson and Scott Hildebrand, university communication; Dean O’Brien, communication processes; Bill Meindl (publisher, UWGB alum; Jennifer Ham, German; Ken Fleurant, French, and many faculty and staff who have since retired. In addition, hundreds of current and former students have played a role in producing the magazine. Goff has been editor for 15 years.
