MPL's newest digital collection

The Milwaukee Public Library is launching its latest digital collection: Milwaukee Mayors.

Solomon Juneau, Milwaukee's first mayor

This collection includes photos or drawings of all but one of Milwaukee mayors, past and present. A biographical sketch of each mayor is also included. This is a great way to see what the leaders of the City of Milwaukee looked like, and also learn a little about them.

Most of the information, and many of the images for this collection come from the book Biographical sketches of the mayors of the City of Milwaukee, a volume of images and information put together by MPL's staff over the years.

Additional photos were pulled from the Humanities Department's Historic Portrait Collection, which has portraits of many prominent Milwaukee citizens and visitors.
