The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is one of its host city’s oldest institutions. University Archivist Joshua Ranger will explore cultural, economic, educational and political exchanges that have shaped the history of both the campus and the city.
Joshua Ranger received his master’s degree in library and information studies from the University of Wisconsin in 1998. Prior to that, he earned degrees from the University of Cape Town and the University of Wisconsin. He began working at Polk Library in 1998. Prior to that, he worked at the Wisconsin Historical Society as a public records archivist. He is active in the Midwest Archives Conference where he has served in numerous elected and ex-officio roles. He is the agency records officer on campus and, in that role, counsels offices on the proper retention and disposal of public records, and he serves on the collections committee on the Paine Art Center in Oshkosh and the board of the Neenah Historical Society.
