When we started researching this, we soon realized that some of our greatest "leads" as to enrollment would be through the censuses, both Federal & State, as this would be considered a boarding school.  Most of the censuses list the children as residing there for 10 months of the year -- and luckily for us, the census was taken in one of the 10 months!
     And, we'll be adding more census data as we find it.  If you would like a copy of the original page where your family member appears, just email me and we'll gladly send it to you via email FREE -- and the Shawano GenWeb Project would never think of asking for a 50 charge for a 10 copy...
     Many thanks to Sally for her help in locating and copying the census pages.

***NOTE*** These are copied as they were written -- apparently the boys were housed separately & recorded separately than the girls... and no apparent order.

 
1895 Wisconsin State Census lists the Industrial School at Wittenberg with 134 students - 71 males - 63 females.  Unfortunately, the 1895 only lists head of house, not family members and it followed this precedence when listing the school.  The entry is just "Industrial School" and the number of males & females.  (Hey, hang in there - it gets better!)
