P.V. Lawson, Part Two

May 9, 1965, Appleton Post-Crescent
As detailed here, Mr. Lawson wrote prolifically on history, focused mostly on the Fox Valley. His works spanned the time from before the French arrived, through the era of New France, the era of territorial Wisconsin, and up to his contemporary life time. His writings included monographs, books, academic journal articles, and newspaper articles. But Lawson's greatest work I feel was The History of Winnebago County, Wisconsin:  Its Cities, Towns, Resources, People.   It can be read online in its entirety.  Part I is located at: and Part II is at:  It's a good read and a great reference.
