March on Milwaukee: Assisted Search - Henry Maier

Henry W. Maier was mayor of Milwaukee from 1960 until 1988. Although he was born in Dayton, Ohio, a great deal of his schooling happened in Wisconsin. He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin--Madison and a master's degree from the University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee. During his term as mayor, Maier was not a popular figure in Milwaukee's black community. He was known for having a very tense and strained relationship with local blacks.

Maier was also not an advocate of the Civil Rights Movement. more...
