“The first [Zoological Society] board of directors were looking to put Milwaukee on the map, and one of the ways you did that was to build a zoo,” says Bess Frank. Frank, the Milwaukee County Zoo’s unofficial historian and retired curator of large mammals, talks with WUWM’s Lake Effect show about the Zoological Society’s century of Zoo support.
