Wisconsin's population, benefiting from the discovery of lead deposits in the 1820s and a first wave of immigration, reached 305,400 inhabitants in 1850, against 11,700 fifteen years earlier; in 1870, composed for a large part of emigrants from Germany and Scandinavia, it exceeded the million inhabitants. Agriculture specialized in dairy farming from the end of the nineteenth century, while industries (papers, metallurgy) developed in Milwaukee and in the riverside towns on Lake Michigan. Although immigration declined after World War I, Wisconsin's population was over 3 million in 1940.
