This two part article is a good insight into Menasha's renaissance man, Publius V. Lawson, Jr. In his 67 years, Lawson was labeled many things- attorney, politician, businessman, author, historian, lecturer, inventor, and six term mayor of Menasha. In the "Hall of Heroes," should Menasha ever have one, his name would be riding near the top along side the likes of Curtis Reed, Elisha D. Smith, George Banta, John Strange, William Gilbert, George Whiting and many others who made Menasha the pride of the Fox Valley. I'll provide part two of this feature in tomorrow's blog post.
