Wisconsin Swiss Traditional Music Project Collection, 1986-1991


Project documentation and Swissconsin, created under the Wisconsin Folklife Center, then associated with Folklore Village Farm, was subsumed by the Wisconsin Folk Museum, which attained official 501(c)3 non-profit status in 1988. Yodeling in Dairyland was published by the Museum in 1991. When the Folk Museum closed in 1995-1996, materials in the Museum's archives transferred to Mills Music Library and the Wisconsin Historical Society, while the University of Wisconsin-Folklore Program acquired remaining copies of productions and rights to productions and sales of both Swissconsin and Yodeling. The 2004 CD reissue of Swissconsin was published by UW-Madison's Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures. James P. Leary has retained his original research and documentary materials listed here.
