radio history

A History of Radio at MSOE

The Milwaukee School of Engineering has been involved with radio amateurs, education, and broadcasting since the early 20th century. This digital collection illustrates over 100 years of radio involvement in an informative and entertaining way.


The collection is composed of scanned items from the Walter Schroeder Library Archives. Items from the physical collections (school publications, press releases, photographs, etc.) have been selected, digitized, assigned metadata, and brought together in this digital display.


S.O.E. photos

School of Engineering Photographs

The photographs in this collection are from the early years of the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Many of these images were carefully preserved in photograph albums and keepsake books from the early 20th century.


A large percentage of these books appear to have been owned by members of the founding (Werwath) family, and the photographs therein are meant to document the evolution of the school as it changed locations, added education programs, and stayed at the cutting edge of technological advances.
