Glorious Malone, Meinhardt Raabe, Gary Underwood, and Roger and Pat Van Hemelryk will be inducted into the Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame on May 12 at a luncheon in Madison.
Malone, who owns Malone's Fine Sausage of Milwaukee, began her pioneering journey in the 1960s by making headcheese in her home kitchen. Unbeknownst to her, the product was being resold and served in stores and taverns as far away as Chicago. Glorious passed away four years ago. She used the popularity of that product to found a successful business that today produces a variety of meat products sold throughout the Midwest region.

Raabe represented Oscar Mayer & Co. as "Little Oscar" and played a key part in the company's early efforts to gain brand recognition. Raabe, a native of Jefferson County, took a leave from his job at Oscar Mayer to play the role of munchkin coroner for the movie Wizard of Oz. The resulting celebrity further propelled the Little Oscar character and Oscar Mayer products to new markets throughout the nation. Raabe died in 2009.
"...she's really most sincerly dead."

It’s a thrill to have a news story about Wisconsin that has nothing to do with holding the Capitol hostage.
Its a thrill to have a news story about MEAT.
Who knew there was a meat hall of fame?
Another place of pilgrimage to visit.
