      Female Band Serenading Cows dates from 1930, and it is a well-known photograph in the Society's historic image collection. The Ingenues, an all-girl band and vaudeville act, serenaded the cows in the University of Wisconsin-Madison Dairy Barn in a scientific test of whether the cows would give more milk to the soothing strains of music. The tallest woman, second from left, is Dorothy Donohoe. Standing behind her is her sister Juel Donohoe, who is mostly obscured by the trombone player.

      Article published in Capital Times Aug. 6, 1930 and photograph and article published in Capital Times Aug. 8,1930. The original caption indicates that "the cows were too surprised at the unusual treat to react in the way expected." Per an article in the Rhinelander Daily News of August 11, 1930, one of the performers is Lucille Westgate of Rhinelander. This image is one of almost 14,000 images created by Angus B. McVicar.
