houses a large collection of African and American wild game mounts, along with
some trophy fish. This display became the museumís first exhibit in 1984, and
was officially dedicated in July of 1986.
Fenske, an auto parts dealer from Milwaukee, went on seven safaris to six
African countries and brought back these many trophy mounts, some of which were
records at that time. Other animals were taken in the western United States and
Canada. The fish were caught in waters off the Mexican coast and from some
Canadian lakes. Mr. Fenske passed away August 13, 1992.
Individually-tagged African items in this room including the shotgun, knife with
fork, some hand-carved artifacts, some paintings, and a zebra-hide drum were
presented by the late Ted Bachhuber. These objects were gifts to Ted, from his
favorite aunt Margaret of California who traveled extensively in Africa.
