Note

Built in 1895-1896. Robert C. Spencer, Jr., Chicago, architect.

“Mrs. Rehfeld, Madison, describes the interior floor plan: “A large living room/parlor were located across the front; sliding oak doors closed off the large hall from the parlor, dining room and living room; a china room with glass shelves and cabinets separated the dining room and refrigerator room. The cloak room and washroom were located in the lower part of the tower. There were two stairways: a front stairway located in the tower with a landing half-way up which had tall windows and a window seat (for plants); and a back stairway which went from the “walk-out” basement to the third floor. On the second floor there were four bedrooms, one bath and the linen room; the third floor had one finished and two unfinished rooms.”

Mrs. Rehfeld spent her childhood at the house (she is either the daughter or the grand-daughter of Marshall Parkinson).

On the original mount, in Darwin Clark's hand, is written:"This is a picture of the Front view of my Furniture Rooms which was first taken on the 10th day June 1887 that day being the Fiftieth anniversary of my arrival and settling in Madison Wisconsin."

"I came to know Gustave Janeck early in the season of 1856. I learned he was a professional in Ornamental Wood Carving which he learned in Germany. I soon saw that he was a natural mechanic and quite a Genius to make himself useful in all the varied Industries of the furniture business. His skill in the matrass business became first class - also in upholstering. He filled the Position of Salesman nicely. He was a man of strict integrity, honest, Just, upright cheerful and genial. He had many virtues of the Just. He was ever free from the Arts and tricks of the Jockey. He was in my employ nearly 32 years. He was with me when I sold out the Furniture business. I found only 3 errours in his cash record during the 32 years. During that Period never any harsh words passed between us. He was an efficient assistant in pushing forward the different industries in the furniture business. He Died September 16th 1895. He now rests from his labors and we believe he is happy in Elysian fields of Beauty. Darwin Clark." Simeon Mills is in the photo with Clark.

Note

"Supreme Court" building of Wisconsin Territory (embracing present Iowa and Minnesota) was built in 1836 of lumber brought by water from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Constructed for use as the Supreme Court but never actually used. The only session of the court at Old Belmont held in 1836 in the Legislative building, while the court was under construction, was quickly adjourned for lack of business. The court was moved soon after to Burlington, Iowa, and then to Madison.

The building was later used as a horse barn on the Charles C. Arthur farm and later as the residence of Charles Dunn. The Supreme Court building was restored and moved to a new foundation beside the restored Territorial Capitol on the grounds of the First Capitol State Park and was dedicated October 27, 1957.

Note: This striking photograph was made by Joseph Livermore of Madison when he was 15 years old, using a vest pocket Kodak. He then sold small prints at 5 cents each, reputedly to finance the purchase of a bicycle (the boy wished to charge 10 cents, but his father was of the opinion that this price was exhorbitant). A print purchased by an out-of-town commercial photographer was used to produce copies from which Livermore received no profit.

A.H, Sanford is standing at the left end of the top row. The Pickwick Club was a student boarding club. Founded in the 1870s, it was the longest-lived of such organizations, and probably due to its longevity, achieved the most social distinction. Most such clubs were organized by a single enterprising student or group of students, and lost impetus and disbanded when the good managers left school or graduated.

Graduation ceremony at the University of Wisconsin, Bascom Hill, about 1917
Note: This may be the May Fete (note the maypoles), annual spring celebration held on Bascom Hill mid-May for many years, rather than graduation exercise. The scene is very similar to Senior Swingout, an honor ceremony formally instituted in 1921, in which the graduating senior women pass the Torch of Knowledge to their counterparts in the junior class. The seniors are traditionally clad in commencement robes; the juniors in white. Since Senior Swingout is usually held in mid-May also, the custom may have originated with May Fete ceremonies.

University of Wisconsin baseball team, 1909 October
Note

Coached by Dr. Charles “Mac” McCarthy, legislative reference librarian, arrived in Yokohama on September 16 to play nine ball games primarily with students from Waseda and Keio Universities in Tokyo. The trip was organized by Genkwan Shibata, U.W. ’09, who travelled as business manager and official interpreter.

While in Japan, the ball team was feted on innumerable occasions. Two of the more memorable affairs are described in detail by Oswald Lupinski, ’10, who wrote an account for The Wisconsin Engineer in February 1910. This could a photograph of the “banquet given by Yokohama miteci at the Chi tose ro (the finest tea house in Yokohama)” on the evening of October 6th, or the farewell banquet given by the Keio alumni at the Kojunsha Club in Tokyo held on October 12th. Two-hundred and fifty people were served, including the UW party, the Keio and Waseda teams, Tokyo businessmen and some newspapermen, and innumerable university officials.

Scouts and guides in the Army of the Potomac, around 1864
Note: “The individuals in the group were attached to the secret service department of the Army of the Potomac when it was directed by Allan Pinkerton. Many of these men who were gathered for service on the Peninsula were known as Pamunkey Indians, relics of a small Virginia tribe which had intermarried considerably with the African Americans. They were very loyal to the Union, and their services were invaluable to McClellan during the spring and summer of 1862. After Pinkerton left the army, the whole secret service department was reorganized by Colonel Sharpe and he drew more largely from the ranks for the composition of his force. Whenever these men were captured, they were hanged as spice.”

Sketch of Camp Randall seen from “top of University Building” done by William Fiske Brown, Co. B, 40th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, Madison, Wisconsin, 1864 May 20
Note: At the outbreak of the Civil War, Governor Randall directed Maj. Horace A. Tenney to put the fairground near the University into condition for reception of Wisconsin troops. This was quickly done and in honor of the governor, it was named Camp Randall. During the war the following troops were stationed at Camp Randall while being organized for service: 2nd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 11th, 12th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 20th, 23rd, 19th, 30th, 36th, 37th, 38th, 40th, 46th, 47th, 19th and 50th. Also, Co. G of Berdan’s Sharpshooters. The building on the mound to the left is the old fairground building. The other barracks were probably built during the Civil War as part of the “putting into condition” ordered by Gov. Randall.
