Tribute to Marty Perkins, Old World Wisconsin's Curator of Research

Many have paid tribute to Marty Perkins, who died of a heart attack on November 3, 2012, at his home in Mukwonago, Wisconsin.

Marty helped found Old World Wisconsin, starting work on the site in October 1974 as a member of the construction crew two years before the site opened to the public. He helped to transport and re-erect many of Old World Wisconsin's significant ethnic structures.

He devoted more than 37 years to research and interpretation at Old World Wisconsin. Each exhibit he worked on displays his heart, passion and sound historic research. He will be missed more than words can say.
