In memory of:
Frank P. Zeidler
Frank P. Zeidler
passed away on Friday evening, July 7th, 2006. He was Milwaukee's mayor
from 1948-1960 during a time of great change for the city. America's
last Socialist mayor of a major U.S. city, Mr. Zeidler was a living, vibrant
part of the Milwaukee community for 93 years. He never tired of helping
others and promoting issues that he felt vital to the people of Milwaukee.
In a sense, you could have called him your friend. As it relates to
Wisconsin drive-in theaters, Mr. Zeidler as Mayor of Milwaukee, cut the ribbon
at the Grand Opening ceremonies of two local drive-in theaters. The
41 Twin Outdoor (1948) which was located in Franklin, WI and the Starlite
Drive-in (1955) which was opened in Menomonee Falls, WI. I had the great
privilege of interviewing him twice in the past few years. The first
time I contacted Mr. Zeidler was in June of 2001 for a audio tape interview
on his remembrances of the grand opening ceremonies. He happily obliged
my request. I then contacted Mr. Zeidler in December of 2003 for a video
tape interview on the same subject for my documentary on the 41 Twin Outdoor.
Once again, he stepped forward to help an average guy add that special touch
to a ongoing film documentary. My two relatively brief encounters with
Mr. Zeidler will be with me for a lifetime. I am sure that I speak for
many people in that Mr. Zeidler will truly be missed. A link to Milwaukee's
historical past has been broken. May you rest in peace, dear friend.
2008 marked the 75th anniversary of the first drive-in theater built in Camden, NJ. It opened on June 6, 1933. Many thanks to Richard Hollingshead Jr. for coming up with the concept of the drive-in theater. Where memories are made!
