Summary
Educator and activist Reuben K. Harpole was born on September 4, 1934 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He grew up in Milwaukee's "Bronzeville" neighborhood, graduating from North Division High School in 1953. In 1957, Harpole was drafted into the Army and served in Korea. Harpole began a thirty-one year tenure at the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin at the recommendation of former Milwaukee Mayor Frank Zeidler in 1966.
