Anita Zeidler

Anita Zeidler was, like Charlotte Bleistein, a dedicated and powerful though soft-spoken woman who was both a long term Milwaukee Turner and a Socialist, and both were deeply influenced by Frank Zeidler, Anita's father and Milwaukee's Mayor from 1948-1960. Last September we lost Charlotte, who died in her sleep at 102 after being with us and many others at Fightin' Bob Fest, carrying on the tradition of Bob LaFollette, who thought people's interests came before corporations.
