History in a Bag- Riverside Museum

Carol Mullen will talk on “Beyond Beer and Lederhosen: The Germans

in the La Crosse area”. She comes from a local German American family, is a retired

public librarian, and volunteers for La Crosse County Historical Society. She’ll briefly

outline the history of Germans in La Crosse County; touch on some differences

between Germans and German Americans, and how German stereotypes and realities

are two different things; plus share a few photos/stories of her German family

members and their life here, with thoughts on what that heritage has meant to her.
