My mom, who is 86 was a resident of the Milwaukee Orphanage from the approximately age 7 through age 9. She informs me that she first was at the Home for Dependent Children in Wauwatosa before being placed at the Orphanage(she feels as though the Dependent children home was a "holding" place for kids.
She recalls the Orphangage being located on Prospect and North Ave. on Milwaukee's east side. I have yet to find anything conclusive about this as well, but will keep searching and asking the questions until I can hopefully gain some insight into this. I'm sure we all would appreciate any and all information that can answer some of our questions.
In the meantime, I will try to jog my mom's memory a bit more. She is absolutely adamant that the Orphanage was on the east side, and I believe that to be true.
