Welcome to Brumder.net

2014 marks the sesquicentennial of the “founding” George Brumder opening his first bookstore at 306 W. Water Street on May 15, 1864. 

These 150 years have witnessed massive structural changes in publishing and book selling–particularly the last five or so years. 

With this website, I hope to usher in a new era of Brumder “publishing.”  In addition to using this space to connect family members far and wide, I plan to upload a digitized copy of The Life and Times of George and Henriette Brumder, which can be read, searched or downloaded online. 

Please feel free to look around and email me for a free @brumder.net email account.

From 1864 to 2014, from Milwaukee to Seattle to the World Wide Web, I welcome you to our shared web presence. 

Hoch Leben, 

George Richard Brumder (“George V”)
