In 1951, Employers' Mutual of Wausau (later Wausau Insurance) published a small, 32-page booklet by Irwin Rickel, who gave tips on how to watch the sport of football. In the forward, the then head coach of UCLA, Henry "Red" Sanders, stated that it was "the best football booklet of its kind I have ever seen both from a standpoint of authenticity and in its manner of presentation."
The Employers Mutual Liability Company of Wausau (Wausau Insurance) published A Guide Book in Safety Education by G. W. Bannerman in 1937.
In the early years of the 20th Century, Wausau photographer James M. Colby was experimenting with some interesting techniques in developing photographs, including changing the landscapes of Central Wisconsin towns.
