When the Monona Terrace was being built, the public was offered the opportunity to purchase commemorative tiles for placement on the Terrace Roof Garden.
The other day I finally had a chance to locate (again) the tile purchased by the Madison Männerchor at the time.
It is located in the southeast corner of the Roof Garden, near the sign for the Lake Vista Cafe (see picture).
We helped celebrate Werner Inglin’s 80th Birthday last Sunday at The Willows. We all had a great time- Werner even serenaded us!
“Tom George Greenway is for Thomas T. George (1924-1999), a Madison lawyer, alderman from 1971 to 1975, and a Heritage Heights resident who lived at 905 Inwood Way.”
Tom sang with the Männerchor for many years. This Greenway is located off of Cottage Grove Road on the East side of Madison.
Extraordinary castles built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria in the late 19th century are explored. Hosted by Dan Cruickshank.
The Madison Männerchor was mentioned in two places in the Winter 2015-2016 edition of the the “Wisconsin Magazine of History”.
In the article, “Green Turtle Soup, Lobster Newburg and Roman Punch”, the MMC is referred to as “Suitable entertainment…” on page 19 and listed on the reproduced menu from 1901 on page 21.

The Rathskeller, Memorial Union, 800 Langdon Street
The Deutscher Sprachatlas is an important German linguistics atlas in Memorial Library’s German language and literature collection. Unfortunately it has not been available to linguistic students and scholars due to its fragile condition. With funding from the Friends [of the UW-Madison Libraries], the original has been carefully restored by Memorial Library’s Preservation Department and a facsimile created for use in the stacks.
Help us celebrate the unveiling of the restored atlas and facsimile in Der Rathskeller at Memorial Union. You can view the Sprachatlas, listen to German-Wisconsin music, learn about the importance of this document, hear about its preservation, and celebrate Oktoberfest! German-style refreshments will be available. Wunderbar! For more details about the restoration, see the article on page 8 in the
Fall 2013 Friends Newsletter.
Cosponsored by the
Memorial Library Reference and the Collection Preservation Departments, the Department of German, the Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies and Mills Music Library.
