Topic: “Murderous Millinery” 
By: Emily Rock, Registrar

What late 19th Century fashion statement was so deadly? Feathers. Join Registrar Emily Rock as she overviews the history of using feathers on clothing and accessories, how the feather trade endangered 100s of species, and how a turn-of-the-century crusade against cruelty to birds led to a wider wildlife conservation movement in the United States.

This summer the Oshkosh Public Museum will unveil a unique exhibition, Titanic: The Wisconsin Connection. Over two years in the making, this exceptional exhibition is based on in-depth research of Wisconsin passengers, conducted by Museum staff and researchers from Experiential Media Group. There were over fifty people on the great ship, in all classes, who were either from Wisconsin or were journeying to the state as immigrants.  This exhibition tells the story of twenty of those passengers and is being developed specifically for the Oshkosh Public Museum.
