About Arthur G Czerwinski
The "Singing Clerk." A baritone in the San Carlos Opera Co., he also sang at various Polish functions and gatherings in Milwaukee. He was a graduate of St. Mary's College in Lebanon, Kentucky. Early in his career, he had the opportunity to sing with the Metropolitan Grand Opera Company in New York. However, he decided that he'd rather stay in Milwaukee. A decision so shocking (to New Yorkers) that it made the front page of the New York Times.
Of course, like many artists, Arthur Czerwinski also had a day job. His, at least the for last 24 years of his life, was as a Clerk for the Civil Court in Milwaukee. He had also been a member of the Kosciouszko Guard.
