Call Number: Green Bay Mss 157
Abstract: Papers, circa 1841-circa 1925, of Joseph Nuesse, who emigrated from Germany to Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1869, and soon moved to the Town of Sevastopol, Door County, where he farmed and was a founder of SS. Peter and Paul Congregation and the Sevastopol Mutual Fire Insurance Corporation.

Abstract: Records, 1979-2004, of Nukewatch, a national antinuclear group formed in Madison, Wisconsin, and later based in Luck, Wisconsin. Nukewatch began in 1979 as an educational project of the Progressive Foundation, which in turn grew out of fundraising by The Progressive magazine to meet the costs associated with its attempted publication of an article containing alleged atomic bomb secrets. After the legal case was dropped, the foundation transformed its mission to antinuclear education and action. The records primarily concern “Truck Watch,” a project begun in 1984 that monitored the shipment of nuclear missiles by truck from assembly plants to military installations around the country, and non-violent direct actions directed against Project ELF, a controversial Navy communications system located in Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan.

Summary: The Minnesota Folk Arts Program (Philip Nusbaum) Collection primarily contains photographic images, video, and sound recordings of well over 350 Minnesota folk artists and traditional musicians that resulted from John Berquist's and mainly Philip Nusbaum's tenure as Folk Arts Program associates at the Minnesota State Arts Board (1983-2003). Reaching back to 1959 and including collaborations with numerous folklorists in the region, materials relate to the Minnesota Traditional Music Series of commercial recordings, Minnesota Folk Arts radio shows, folk artist directories, apprenticeship and folklore sponsorship grant programs, festival demonstrations and performances, and teaching programs. Minnesota's diverse ethnic make-up is especially featured, including indigenous Ojibwas and older and newer immigrant groups from North and Central America, northern, western, and eastern Europe, the Mediterranean and Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Besides an emphasis on musical traditions from bluegrass to polka, Ojibwa to Norwegian-American, Latino, African-American, Hmong-American, and Slovenian-American, artistic expressions range widely and include diverse basket-making, beadwork, needlework, papercutting, painting, and woodcarving traditions, some related to regional occupational, recreational, and subsistence pursuits like farming, icefishing, and wildricing.
