Fred Birchmore rode his bicycle around the world (Norway to Saigon) in 1935-36 and wrote a book about it. His bicycle is in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution. He and his wife of 72 years, Willa Dean Stuckey Birchmore, have lived an adventurous life based in Athens. Mr. Birchmore donated 25 acres of land to Athens’ Memorial Park. He died today at the age of 100. This photo is from our profile of him doing his YMCA workout routine in spring 2010 at the age of 98. Thank you Fred Birchmore. (Photo ©2010 Michael Lachowski.)
