The extensive records of John Schmitt, president from 1966 to 1986, include files documenting Schmitt's involvement with numerous state agency advisory committees and commissions, especially unemployment insurance and workers' compensation; various Milwaukee governmental committees and civic organizations, including Milwaukee World Festival (which produced Summerfest); and other professional organizations and public service groups with which he was involved.
