Chat and Explore: “Life and Health in the Streets of old Milwaukee: lifestyles and approach to public health, 1890-1915”
Maybe the good old days weren’t as good as we think. Modern medical care and the well being of the people of major cities were new ideas as we approached the beginning of the 20th century. Concerns over water use, sewerage disposal, food purity and the eradication of dread disease were all part of the growing infrastructure of Milwaukee. Learn how one major American city tackled issues of health for its citizens in this chat with Milwaukee Public Museum’s Curator of American & Local History, Al Muchka.
