Carl Baehr – Milwaukee Street names and their origins.
Carl Baehr, a Milwaukee native, is the author of Milwaukee Streets: The Stories Behind their Names, and writes the City Streets column for Urban Milwaukee. He has written articles on other local history topics and has done extensive research for his upcoming book, Dreams and Disasters: A History of the Irish in Milwaukee. Baehr, a professional genealogist and historical researcher with an MLIS from UWM’s School of Information Science, gives talks on these subjects, particularly on the Lady Elgin Disaster, the Newhall House Fire and the Third Ward Fire; three events that helped shape the lives of the city’s Irish.
