Oscar Rennebohm (May 25, 1889 – October 15, 1968) was an American politician, a pharmacist, and the 32nd Governor of Wisconsin.

Early life

Born in Leeds, Wisconsin, in Columbia County,[1] Rennebohm moved with his family to Milwaukee, Wisconsin when he was ten. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1911, after which he worked as a pharmacist and in 1912 he founded Rennebohm Drug Stores under a Rexall franchise. He was vice-president of the American Pharmaceutical Association, president of the Wisconsin Pharmaceutical Association and Regent of the University of Wisconsin.


During World War I, he attended officer candidate school and was commissioned an Ensign in the United States Navy.

In 1945, Rennebohm was elected the 30th Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin. When Governor Walter Goodland died shortly after his third term began, Rennebohm succeeded him, winning election to the governorship in 1948.[2] During his tenure as governor, Rennebohm began a veterans' housing program financed by an increased liquor tax. In 1949, he founded the Rennebohm Foundation, which supports education in the Madison area. The school of pharmacy at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is named after Rennebohm.[3]


Rennebohm retired and died in Madison, Wisconsin, on October 15, 1968 (age 79 years, 143 days). He is interred at Forest Hill Cemetery, Madison, Wisconsin.

Family life

Son of William Carl and Julia Brandt Rennebohm, he married Mary Fowler on September 8, 1920 and they had one daughter, Carol Ann.
