Tom Brown: Milwaukee's original fitness and nutrition guru

Tom Brown's body lies a-mouldering in the grave, but his soul goes marching on along Capitol Drive from Milwaukee to Pewaukee Lake and back. Up until his death in 1955 at age 85, the man hailed as "a familiar and amazing figure to thousands of Milwaukeeans" and "Milwaukee's patriarch of walking and bicycling" celebrated his birthday by walking the 36 miles between Shorewood and Pewaukee Lake.
