We invite you to the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Friends of the Max
Kade Institute in Janesville, Wisconsin, a city at the crossroads
of American history.
Our day will begin with a tour of the Lincoln-Tallman House, a mansion
constructed between 1855 and 1857. Until 1915, the house was occupied
by the William Morrison Tallman family. In October of 1859, Abraham
Lincoln stayed here after giving a series of speeches in Beloit and
Janesville. Please note two different tour-time options!
The annual meeting and dinner will be held at the historic Armory,
built in 1930 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Your dinner includes a choice between three German-style entrees.
We will conclude with a presentation on “Living in an Anglo
Community: German Americans in Janesville, Wisconsin” by Cora
Lee Kluge, Professor of German at UW–Madison and MKI Co-Director.
