Saturday, November 17: East Side Artists Karl & Evelyn Milroy

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on November 11, 2012

Two East Side kids made it BIG in New York.

Karl Milroy started out as an illustrator for the Milwaukee Journal and went on to create drawings for covers of national magazines. He later did artwork for Ray-O-Vac. His wife Evelyn Olson became a high fashion model in New York City. Karl’s friend Sara Preez has a collection of Karl’s artwork and Evelyn’s modeling photos to share with the East Side History Club.

Do you have artwork by other Madison artists? Bring a piece to share.
