Posted by: Tom Pace - July 08, 2008
Dr. Harry Briggs, Adjunct Political Science Professor at Northern State University's Leesville Campus, talks "One-on-One" with Tom Pace from "The Talk of the Town" www.shrevetalk.com about his annual memorial swim in memory of his late wife, Lydia, an avid tennis player at NSU.

Dr. Briggs tells Tom the story of his record-making lond distance swim across Lake Erie that lasted 35 hours...and the story of "The Paddlin' Professor" swimming to raise money for NSU's women's tennis team.

Briggs turned 87 this year, and says he makes 1,200 stokes for every mile he swims. It's a beautiful story of love, courage, and devotion. Enjoy.
