Speaker Presentations

The Milwaukee County Historical Society staff offers on-site and off-site presentations about a variety of topics related to Milwaukee County history. Presentations can be given based on popular presentation topics and areas of staff expertise. You are also invited to request presentations on specific topics and if we are able, we are happy to create the presentation specifically for your group, lecture, or other event.

  • Presentations must be scheduled in advance and it is requested that you contact the Society at least two weeks but no more than 6 months before your desired date. However, as much advanced notice as possible is best for special request topics.
  • Presentations are usually about 45 minutes to one hour but can be adjusted by request.
  • A donation of $100 is requested, per offsite presentation, to cover staff time. There may be additional fees assessed for travel, talks that occur outside normal business hours, or for custom presentations.

Contact Mary Jo Knapp at 414-273-8288 or for more information or to schedule a lecture.

For a list of topics, please view our speaker presentations brochure. Please note that our ability to fulfill requests is subject to staff availability.
