Listen to this: Superior Telegram's Archive Dive discusses how Edith Carlson almost built a Frank Lloyd Wright House
Wed Sep 14 13:00:00 EDT 2022
Today the Superior Telegram released its eighth episode of Archive Dive, the monthly history podcast hosted by Telegram reporter Maria Lockwood. Every month, Maria and a local historian dip into the archives of historic events, people and places in Superior and Douglas County.

Did you know Superior has the honor of having the first and the last Carnegie Libraries? During this month’s episode, local historian and retired librarian Teddie Meronek joins us to take us back in time and share the details of how this came to be. It started with the library on Hammond Avenue for 120 years, opening in 1902, before closing in the 1990’s, and has been vacant for many decades. It has been the focus of big dreams, but none of them have panned out.  But recently, the Superior City Council voted to purchase the time-worn building to repair it to a viable state. It was the first of 63 libraries to be built in Wisconsin with funding from industrialist Andrew Carnegie.

Just three employees were on staff when the three-story sandstone library opened its doors. The main floor featured chandeliers and nice furniture and the majority of the attractions, such as the children’s room. The public meeting rooms were located in the basement and the board room and art room were located upstairs. As Meronek pointed out, they started running out of space early. A mezzanine was added in the 1930s to help with space issues. 

Before the Hammond Avenue location added the mezzanine, Superior would get money from Carnegie again in 1917 for a branch library in East End. Meronek grew up visiting both locations and would eventually go on to work at both sites, calling her career a “dream job.” Both locations closed their doors at the end of 1991, making way for the current Superior Public Library building on Tower Avenue.  The East End branch was turned into a private residence, but the library on Hammond sits empty. Meronek has also been involved in historical preservation and hopes the building is part of Superior’s future.

“I said this at the city council meeting, not every old building can be saved, nor should it be saved, but this one needs to be saved. We have the first Carnegie library in Wisconsin. There are other cities that would kill to have a Carnegie library, we have two of them, the first and the last, and I think that we owe that building, just for the fact that it survived 120 years and has been mishandled and abused for the last 30 years of it, we owe it to that library to do what we can to save it.”

Other discussion topics include how the library benefited from the Works Progress Administration, sacrifices during the Great Depression and the role the library played in the life of Esther Bubley, an award-winner photographer.

You can find that full episode at superiortelegram.com or whatever streaming service you listen to this podcast.  

Today, we are re-sharing Archive Dive's seventh episode, which was released in August. It is titled "How a Superior woman almost built a Frank Lloyd Wright house." Enjoy!
