Max Kade Institute (for German-American Studies) Friends Annual Meeting & Dinner
Saturday, May 5, 2-8:30 pm, in Watertown, Wisconsin
Join us for the Friends Annual Meeting and an exploration of the
fascinating history of Watertown and its
early German settlers, many of whom were "Forty-Eighters" who had left
the German states after the
failed European revolutions of 1848-49.
We will tour the Octagon House and America's first Kindergarten,
opened by Margarethe Meyer Schurz.
The annual meeting will be held at Lindberg's By the River Restaurant,
a short walk from the Kindergarten,
and will be followed by a German-style dinner and a presentation on
"The German-Speaking 48ers of Watertown."
Our speaker will be Professor Jeffrey Wallman, the son of Charles
Wallman, author of the MKI publication with the same title.
