From the Emerald Isle to the Cream City

A History of the Irish in Milwaukee

A book talk and book signing by Carl Baehr

Join local author, Carl Baehr as he presents a book talk and signing of his book which chronicles the history of the Irish in Milwaukee. This historical tour captures it all–from the difficulties in adapting to American ways, as seen through events like the Leahey riot and the lynching of Marshall Clark, to the successes, such as the founding of the city of Cudahy by a poor Irish immigrant, the film stardom of Tory Hill’s Pat O’Brien and Merrill Park’s Spencer Tracy, and the many people who have Milwaukee streets and parks named for them.

*Refreshments will be provided by the Grafton Historical Society*
