The Nause & Graf Print Collection began as suites of prints donated in 1973 by Dr. & Mrs. Frederick Nause and Dr. & Mrs. Christopher Graf. Over the next twelve years, they along with Dr. & Mrs. William Wagner, Dr. & Mrs. Marvin Jumes and Theodore Arneson continued the practice of annually donating a suite of prints produced at the Lakeside Studio. The studio was financially supported by our donors and was a print shop used by various artists to create editions of prints. As part of the arrangement, the supporters were given 25 suites of prints each year which they then donated to 25 not-for-profit institutions.
