Hinrichs Brothers “Weeks’ Roundup” Cartoons–two more examples

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on June 29, 2010

Sarah White and Ann Waidelich visited with Susan (Hinrichs) Anderson and Rob Anderson in June, to see more of the scrapbooks of “Week’s Roundup” editorial cartoons (see post https://eastsidehistory.wordpress.com/2010/02/27/ed-and-hinrichs-weeks-roundup-in-the-capital-times/)

Because the cartoons ran in the newspaper when papers were a generous  15 inches wide, it isn’t easy to scan and reproduce these fascinating cartoons. These rough photos taken by Sarah will have to do for now. We hope they whet your appetite for more. We plan to feature the story of the Hinrichs brothers (who were East Siders) at our September 2010 meeting.

Appeared October 29, 1962.

Appeared September 15, 1969.

May “Celebrating East High Athletics” was just the beginning…

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on June 18, 2010

Our May 22, 2010 meeting drew a record crowd to hear about “East High Athletics, The Early Years” presented by Dave Martinson and John Olson (class of ’53), followed by reminiscences from class of ’59 teammates Pat Richter and Steve Underwood. Time permitted only a look at the early years, 1930s-1950s, so Dave and John plan to present the next “chapters” in the future. The East Side History Club thanks everyone who helped make the meeting a success. And thanks, Jean Lang, for the photos!

Attendees socialized outside the auditorium before the program began...

...and took in information while seated in the auditoriums plastic "bucket seats"...

...and finally, enjoyed a few remarks from Pat Richter (left) and Steve Underwood (right).

p.s. About those “bucket seats”–the East High “Raise the Curtain” campaign is raising funds to renovate the East High theater, returning the space to its original capacity and acoustic quality, and replacing the 1970s-era plastic seats with authentic theater seats.
