Attorney Bremer Muggli was honored to take part in the most recent D.C. Everest Oral History Project, Wisconsin Women: Celebrating Their Contributions. During her interview with D.C. Everest students, Christine discussed her transition from Chicago to the Wausau area; the past, current and future trends for women in the legal profession and the professional world at large; her passion for politics; and the struggle to maintain a life/work balance.
The Oral History Project (OHP) involves students from grades 8-12 and is both an extracurricular club and a program integrated directly into the curriculum. The collaborative project is guided by the Oral History Association guidelines and involves student immersion in historical research, followed by personal interviews with people throughout Wisconsin. Students are responsible for conducting, transcribing and editing interviews and designing the publication. Between 500 to 1,000 copies are printed, with books ranging from 300-600 pages. Sales of the book are used to fund future OHP projects.
OHP has won several awards, the most recent being the prestigious Beveridge Family Teaching Award from the American Historical Association in January 2010.
Attorney Bremer Muggli salutes the students for their exceptional efforts and is sincerely honored for the opportunity to be a part of Wisconsin Women: Celebrating Their Contributions.
