Tuesday on Lake Effect: Canoeing the Northwest Passage, Lead Response, Italian Ballplayers

Apr 24, 2018

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

We meet a Marquette graduate who recreated the effort by 18th Century Scottish explorer Alexander Mackenzie, who searched for the elusive Northwest Passage through northern Canada to China.  Later, a lead contamination expert talks about the opportunity she still believes Milwaukee has to respond to the lead crisis here.  And Milwaukee writer and historian Larry Baldassaro shares histories of Italian-American baseball players he's collected from first-hand interviews over the years.
