Veteran Milwaukee journalist Robert Tanzilo loves old schoolhouses, so much so that he’s written a book about them. Historic Milwaukee Public Schoolhouses details the development of MPS, brick by brick. Tanzilo’s book offers a romantic perspective of how the grand old buildings have fit in Milwaukee’s skyline, and served as cultural anchors for the neighborhoods. Mark Siegrist and WisconsinEye videographer John Schroeder visited with the author at one of his favorite MPS properties, Maryland Avenue Montessori School on Milwaukee’s eastside. Their conversation was recorded on November 9, 2012.
