Odd Wisconsin at the Wisconsin Historical Society

The guiding disclaimer that informs this website offered by the Wisconsin Historical Society is that well-known dictum, "Je n'impose rien; je ne propose rien: j'expose," which means: "I do not impose anything; I do not propose anything: I expose." By drawing on its vast holdings of compelling and curious primary documents, the Wisconsin Historical Society offers these small portions of odd and unusual historical items that are quite worth perusing. The project was started in January 2004, and visitors can view the current items, or look through the monthly archives. The selections offered here may also be browsed by categories, such as odd lives, strange deaths, bizarre events, and animals. Some of the rather intriguing events that visitors can read about here include a first-hand account of the deep freeze of 1838 and Wisconsin's first poet, the rather eccentric James Gates Percival. It may truly be said that this site has "something for everyone."
