2016 Book Festival Author

Gavin Schmitt is a local historian, dividing his time between northeast Wisconsin history (especially the Fox Cities) and state-wide criminal history. By day he is a docent at the Neenah Historical Society, and by night he combs through thousands of law enforcement documents to piece together the story of the Mafia in Wisconsin. Schmitt is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, where he majored in philosophy.
