Feb. 6, 2012

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the historic Cudahy Depot, corner of South Kinnickinnic and East Plankinton avenues. Refreshments will be served; everyone is invited.

Copies of the 128-page book and photo archive, available since early December and printed by Arcadia Publishing, will be available for purchase for $21.99, with profits benefiting the Bay View Historical Society.

He was also speak about famous residents including former Milwaukee mayor Daniel Hoan and civil rights activist James Groppi.
