By Nancy Oestreich Lurie

Milwaukee Public Museum curator emerita of anthropology, Lurie has devoted her life to understanding and improving the lives of native peoples. Her many publications include Mountain Wolf Woman, Special Style: The Milwaukee Public Museum 1882-1982, and Women and the Invention of American Anthropology. Lurie has received many awards, including the Anisfield-Wolf Award, sponsored by the Saturday Review, and the Society's William B. Hesseltine Award.

In the preface, Lurie notes: "Wisconsin continues to offer an unusual opportunity to understand the national Indian picture. Over the years the state has served as a kind of national laboratory for most of the government's policies and programs, while at the same time Wisconsin Indian tribes and organizations have exemplified and sometimes led in new developments to improve the lives of Indian people."
