Milwaukee Zoo News, 1951-1962
The first issue of Milwaukee Zoo News was May 1951, just in time to promote the official summer opening of the Milwaukee County Zoo (still the Washington Park Zoo at that time). Back then the Zoo was not open all year, as it is now. The newsletter was an 8 ½-by-11-inch, glossy, black-and-white publication of four pages. It featured lots of news about new animals at the Zoo plus a few photos. Our archives are missing several issues of this newsletter. If you have copies of any missing issues, please call 414-258-2333 and ask for the publications department.
