Lauren Bremer will present a program on Chief Roy Oshkosh at the Egg Harbor Town Hall on Jan. 26 at 2 pm. Bremer is an English teacher at Gibraltar High School and also serves as the varsity volleyball coach. She and her husband Joel also own Good Eggs in Ephraim.
Bremer often writes for Door County Living and the Peninsula Pulse. She took on the project of researching the life of Chief Oshkosh in the spring of 2011.
Roy Oshkosh became chief of the Menominee Indians upon the death of his father, Chief Reginald Oshkosh, in 1932. He came to Door County in 1939 and was recruited to work in the Sturgeon Bay shipyards during WWII. He had an engineering degree from Carlisle College. Chief Oshkosh died and was buried in the Egg Harbor Cemetery in 1974. Bremer will fill in the details of Chief Oshkosh’s life with her presentation.
All are invited to attend this informative presentation sponsored by the Egg Harbor Historical Society (EHHS). The EHHS will also have photos available to supplement the presentation and guests are encouraged to bring along any photos or information they may have so the EHHS can scan it into its files. The Egg Harbor Town Hall is located on County Road I, located east of Carlsville.
