Green Bay’s Favorite Team in the 1930s – Free Virtual Program


2420 Nicolet Dr. , Green Bay Wisconsin, 54311 - Online Event

A new book has arrived on the scene about the Green Bay Packers.

Tony Walter’s recently published book, The Packers, My Dad, and Me, provides an up close and personal view of the team and the Green Bay community in the 1930s. Tony and his father, John Walter, were both sports editors for the Green Bay Press Gazette. 

The author weaves the story of the 1930s Green Bay Packers from first hand accounts….most notably from his father’s diaries, newspaper columns, and court documents. The court documents are drawn from the collections at the UW-Green Bay Archives and Area Research Center.

Join us as Tony Walter shares stories about the 1930s Green Bay Packers, his research adventures, and his writing process!

This live event will include time for audience questions.
