Tuesday on Lake Effect: Wisconsin’s Suffrage History, H.H. Bennett, History of SpagettiOs

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

We listen back to a conversation with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporters on Wisconsin’s surprisingly checkered history with women’s suffrage. We learn about H.H. Bennett, “the man who made the Dells famous.” We learn about the fight to save Wisconsin’s Native languages. Plus, we’ll tell you about the creator of SpagettiOs, a man from Waukesha.
