Today I wanted to share another new collection with you. The Badger Village Collection is the third collection in the UW-Madison Campus Voices series. Badger Village was a housing community for married student veterans and their families located in Baraboo, Wisconsin from 1946 to 1951. The collection consists of excerpts from interviews with UW residence staff, administration, and student veterans and their wives who lived at Badger Village.
Along with the audio recordings, the UW-Madison Collection also contains images of the village and many images of the students living there.
Take a listen to some of the interviews while looking at the image collection. You will learn about a little slice in UW Madison's student history.
Let us know what you think!
