. Jo Daviess County's population holds 13-15% of the area's population. Former Wisconsin State Universities In 1866, the state legislature established a normal school at Platteville (Platteville, Wisconsin)--the first of eight teacher-training schools across the state. In 1911, the legislature permitted the normal schools to offer two years of post-high school work in art, liberal arts and sciences, pre-law, and pre-medicine. The broadened curriculum proved popular and soon accounted for over one-third of the normal schools' enrollment. In 1920, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching issued a report on "The Professional Education of Teachers of American Public Schools", which attacked such programs, arguing that normal schools should not deviate from their purpose as trainers of teachers. When the Milwaukee Normal School persisted with its popular enhanced curriculum, the regents of the Normal School system, the legislature, and the governor all became involved. MNS President Carroll G. Pearse was forced to resign in 1923, and the regents ordered the discontinuation of non-teacher-education programs. The issue was not settled, though; public pressure for expanded offerings at normal schools continued to grow, and education professionals asserted that traditional two-year curricula in teacher training were inadequate. Name dispute William Harold Fenrick of Platteville (Platteville, Wisconsin), Wisconsin, legally changed his name to Andrew Jackson Griffith and ran unsuccessfully for sheriff of Grant County (Grant County, Wisconsin) in November 2006. Subsequently, actor Griffith filed a lawsuit against Griffith Fenrick, asserting that he violated trademark, copyright (Intellectual property), and privacy (Privacy law) laws by changing his name for the "sole purpose of taking advantage of Griffith's notoriety in an attempt to gain votes". On May 4, 2007, US District Court (United States District Court) Judge John C. Shabaz ruled that Griffith Fenrick did not violate federal (Law of the United States) trademark law because he did not use the Griffith name in a commercial transaction but instead strove "to seek elective office, fundamental First Amendment protected speech."
