Oshkosh lost a legend  with the passing of Clarence "Inky" Jungwirth (1920-2018). One of Oshkosh's most prolific local historians, Inky's gift for story telling and depth of knowledge charmed and impressed anyone fortunate enough to speak with him. The following recordings were done at the Oshkosh Public Library in 2015, covering three general topics: The 6th Ward, Oshkosh Corporation, and South Park/Quarries.
