Abstract:

This report presents the transcripts of oral history interviews conducted as part of an effort to document the construction and World War II-era operations of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant BAAP, Baraboo, Wisconsin. This project was undertaken as part of a larger Legacy Resource Program demonstration project to assist small installations and to aid in the completion of initiation efforts set up in a 1993 Programmatic Agreement among the Army Materiel Command, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and Multiple State Historic Preservation Officers concerning a program to cease maintenance, excess, and dispose of particular properties. As part of the larger project to develop the national historic context of seven sample installations on a state and local level, the major focus of the project at BAAP was to document the impacts that the facility had on the state and local environments.
