Anita Taylor Doering

Anita Taylor Doering graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, double majoring in history and international relations. Not readily seeing tremendous job prospects at the time of her graduation, she continued her studies at Madison, obtaining a master’s degree in library and information studies, with a concentration in archival administration. Many long hours were spent in the stacks at the Wisconsin Historical Society, both as a student and as an entry level archivist.

Anita’s passion has been finding hidden historical gems, making sense of it all and bringing them to light to share with others. For more than 30 years, she has listened to countless stories, visited many attics, and waded through darkness and bat guano, all in her quest for photographs, written documents and other pieces of the past. She is the archives manager and senior archivist at the La Crosse Public Library and enjoys learning new things each day.
