The Milwaukee Business History Index covers references to businesses named in selected books about Milwaukee business history.

The "Source Code List" sheet contains a list of the source codes and the books to which they correspond. Catalog links and location codes are provided for each book.

Additional sources on Milwaukee business history will be added to the Milwaukee Business History Index in the future, so check back for updates to this index.
