Excerpt from Milwaukee Press Club BookFour newspaper men cautiously felt their way down the dark back stairway of the old Sentinel building ai 3 o'clock in the morning, November 1, 1885. In those days the front door was locked at midnight, and there was no elevator. In the cellars of the Sentinel, Herold and Seebote the presses were clanking away, turning out the usual assortment of puffs, libels and uncolored truths. "Thirty" had been called twenty minutes before, and the quartette hurried down Newspaper Row, turned on East Water Street and headed for an all-night chop-house half-way down the block. As they munched their ham sandwiches and washed them down with the foaming brew indigenous to Milwaukee, the grain was planted that germinated and grew into a Milwaukee Press Club. It seemed a Herculean task to band the boys together in the year 1885, for strained relations then existed (now happily altered) between workers employed on the one paper and "the fellows on the other sheets." It must be admitted that ten years ago there was not the spirit of comradery that prevails to-day among the newspaper men of the city - whether of high or low degree. Reporters on one paper regarded those on another as the incarnation of all that was unprofessional. It was suspected that among those higher in authority there was cherished a feeling for contemporaries that ached to find vent in personal peppery editorials. Archie Foster's suggestion seemed impossible of realization.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
