This collection contains the records of a former publicist and member of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors. The papers mainly consist of correspondence and reports regarding Lorraine Radtke's career with the School Board and its various committees, such as the Special Committee on Equality of Educational Opportunity and the Committee on Instruction. These records also include a study, conducted by Radtke, examining the attitudes of teachers in the Milwaukee Public School System. Of interest are the materials relating to the segregation and integration of the schools. A small portion of the records reflect Radtke's other occupations and private life, including personal correspondence. The collection also contains newspaper clippings, fliers, and programs for the 1947 and 1948 season of Music Under the Stars sponsored by the Milwaukee County Park Commission.
