1958 – No. 1 UW football fan dies

On this day Frank W. Fisher, often called the University of Wisconsin’s No. 1 football fan, died in Janesville. A local real estate developer and a graduate of the UW and Marquette University Law School, Fisher saw every Badger team except the 1909 and 1910 squads play at least once. Since the turn of the century, the former State President of the Elks Lodge had attended over 80 Badger football games. [Source: , p.1 8/23/1945]
