Photographs documenting employment offices in Wisconsin, 1911-1937. The Industrial Commission of Wisconsin operated these offices beginning in 1911. In 1918 the offices were operated cooperatively by the Industrial Commission of Wisconsin and the United States Employment Service. In 1934 the Wisconsin State Employment Service, under the jurisdiction of the Industrial Commission, was in charge of these offices. The photographs include images of the exterior of the buildings housing the offices; interiors of the offices including waiting and interviewing rooms with separate facilities for men and women; office workers; and people utilizing the services of these offices. The photographs are from the files of Harry E. Lippart, a long time employee of various Wisconsin employment agencies.
