Exhibit Looks at Occupants of Historic Pabst Building

Pabst exhibitThe UWM Libraries’ Archives Department has created an exhibit that showcases items from their Pabst Brewing Company Records collection, and acknowledges one of the new occupants of the Pabst Brewery complex, UWM’s School of Public Health.

In August of last year, UWM’s School of Public Health (founded in 2009) moved into its new quarters in the former Pabst Brewery, at 1240 N. 10th Street in downtown Milwaukee.

The School enjoys a renovated 56,000 sq. ft., five-story LEED-certified space in a building formerly known as the Manufacturing and Cold Storage Building, building #7, or as noted in the 1934 appraisal report (part of the exhibit), the Hops Storage and Maintenance Department.

The Archives Department will soon be home to the administrative records of the School of Public Health, and is already home to the Pabst Brewing Company Records.

The Brewery’s records measure over 60 feet and include the production ledgers, research journals, and beer labels found in this exhibit.

The exhibit, curated by Archivist Ellen Engseth, is located in the cases outside the Archives Department on the second floor of the Golda Meir Library, 2311 E. Hartford Ave. and will be up through September 30, 2013.
