Vern Dougherty, WALSAA President
I attended the annual FISC reunion held in Madison and was fortunate enough to speak with Hugh Evans, FISC class of 1942. Hugh is a very sharp 93-year-old, who grew up on a farm not far from where I currently live. In our conversation, he shared with me that before he was a zookeeper at the Milwaukee County Zoo, he farmed a section of land that is now a part of Lapham Peak State Park near Delafield. In our discussions, it turns out the hiking trails that I use in Lapham Peak, include a field called “Evans Prairie” and that prairie was named after him. How cool is that!
