Summary

  • Records from the governor's office consisting of papers, mainly 1944-1950, of Republican governor, businessman, and philanthropist Oscar Rennebohm, primarily documenting his tenure as lieutenant governor, 1945-1947; acting governor following the death of Walter S. Goodland, 1947-1949; and as governor, 1949-1951. Subject files document issues such as deer hunting, the Griffenhagen study for reorganization of state government, rent control, housing for World War II veterans, state printing and governmental efficiency, the new governor's mansion, the state centennial celebration, employment and the disabled, Native Americans, the Selective Services, and the Wisconsin National Guard. Well documented federal and state governmental agencies with which Rennebohm had contact include the Annuity and Investment Board, the Committee on Educational Improvement, the Committee on the Resettlement of Displaced Persons, the U.S. Housing Expediter, the Grain and Warehouse Commission, and the Veterans Affairs Department.
