Who's Who in Wisconsin (phantom book)

      I wrote to Marquis Who's Who ([email protected]) on 4-10-2009 about the phantom title Who's Who in Wisconsin. There has been no response from them yet.

      Here is just a small list of people who state they are listed in a book that I cannot verify has ever existed.
