Throwback Thursday – Kathleen Brosius

Kathleen Brosius Throwback Thursday – Kathleen Brosius

Kathleen’s participation in archaeology preceded the formation of MVAC. Starting in 1980, she served with the La Crosse Area Archaeological Society (LAAS) and volunteered with LAAS and UWL and later MVAC on a wide range of surveys and salvage excavations. Kathleen received her BA in Archaeological Studies from UW-La Crosse in 1994. From 1995 to her retirement in 2006, she was MVAC’s Laboratory Manager, where she oversaw daily lab activities, participated in field projects, and curated the MVAC research collections. Her most lasting contribution may be the long stream of students whom she instructed in proper laboratory techniques and mentored in their careers. She was a constant source of support and encouragement for the MVAC staff, students, and the public.  We hope she is enjoying her retirement!
