Brooks Stevens born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was an American industrial designer of home furnishings, appliances, automobiles and motorcycles — as well as a graphic designer and stylist. He studied architecture at Cornell University from 1929 to 1933, and established his own home furnishings design firm in 1934 in Milwaukee. In 1959, Brooks opened a 12,500sf automotive museum in Mequon, Wisconsin, which became a repository for his own designs as well as others—and became a production facility in the late 1980s for the Wienermobile fleet. Stevens designed the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, an American pop-culture icon. He designed engines for Briggs and Stratton. He also designed the university logo for the Milwaukee School of Engineering in 1978 as a part of "The Diamond Jubilee" celebration. The logo remains in use today.
