Cody Schreck, the curator and collections manager for the Ephraim Historical Foundation (EHF), has been selected to serve a two-year term as the northeastern representative of the Wisconsin Council for Local History – an association of 400-plus local, county and specialized historical and heritage organizations that are affiliated with the Wisconsin Historical Society.
In this role, Schreck will promote communication and collaboration among history and heritage groups in Brown, Calumet, Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Marinette, Oconto, Outagamie and Winnebago counties.
“I am very excited to learn more about all of the museums, historical societies and preservation groups in northeastern Wisconsin and get to know the people, both volunteer and full time, who are preserving our region’s unique history on a daily basis,” Schreck said.
The Wisconsin Council for Local History promotes the work of the state’s local historical societies, advises the Wisconsin Historical Society on its services and programming, and serves as a voice of local historians.
Schreck was hired as the EHF’s curator and collections manager about a year ago and has been active in preserving the Ephraim’s history and making it accessible to the public.
