Why was this page created?

Are only Graduates listed here?
      No. Per the site residency rules for Individuals, attendance at a Wisconsin school for one full semester is one of the criteria checked to see if they qualify as a "Wisconsin resident at one time in their life". Musicians are listed here whether or not they graduated from the above school they attended. I try to discover the year they graduated and document that in their site entry, e.g. "grad. UW Oshkosh 2004". However, if I cannot determine that they really did graduate, I usually document it as "attended UW Oshkosh", or if it is a fact at the time I added the note, "attending UW Oshkosh" In many cases, I just have not yet gone back to determine whether or not they graduated since I added the note.

Why was this page created?
      Because in Dec. 2007 I found the page, Lawrence Alumni Compact Discs which included 40 graduate recording artists with their class year and the fact they have appeared on at least one recording. I have not found a similar page featuring an Alumni Discography for any other Wisconsin Grade School, Middle School, High School, College, University or Music Conservatory. But then, I have not found a special Discography page featuring the recordings of Faculty at any school either.

      I have a very long way to go in documenting every musician's school attendence at a Wisconsin school. Of the 4,200+ individual Wisconsin Artists listed at this site, as of 12-14-2007, I know the school attendence of:
      Grade & Middle School - 0 (zero) Artists
      High School - 8 Artists
      post High School (on this page) - 107 Artists
