SCHS Newsletter


April 20th, 2023

The Contents of this Issue
The purpose of our newsletter is to keep our members informed of events taking place at the museum and to keep Seymour History alive through relating past social, cultural and economic activities. In addition to the annual meeting, this publication includes an interview with long time Seymour resident John Cumicek. John recalls growing up in Seymour, living on north Main Street, his time in the army and many changes in the community over the years. Also of interest to local history buffs is a reprint of a 1966 Seymour Press article featuring the retirement of rural mail carrier Herman Husman after 41 years as a rural mail carrier.
From an historical point of view the newsletter focuses on Seymour articles from the Appleton Post Crescent and Green Bay Press Gazette one hundred years ago (1923). Since a fire at the Seymour Press office destroyed copies of the local paper prior to 1947, historians must research Green Bay and Appleton papers for Seymour news. Fortunately, the larger area papers included a "Seymour News" section every week or two. Readers will also find the Music in the Park schedule for 2023. The last several pages of this publication list our most recent contributors. Thank you for your gifts and donations necessary to keep our mission on track. The Seymour City Council recognizes the value of preserving our heritage and supporting an attractive museum through providing the utilities.
