QRYTEXT: Several months ago I read a reference to a Fred P. Newton swimming the length of the Mississippi River in 1930. As an endurance athlete this event fascinated me. Since that time I have been looking for information concerning this adventure. I have been able to find very little information other than the fact that he did it. I found a reference to him being the founder of the Relaxo-bak Company. I contacted the company and was given the information that Mr. Newton lived most of the rest of his life(after the swim and until his death in 1993) in Gainesville, Texas and that he might still have family in the area.. If this is, in fact, true I was wondering if you might be able to give me direction in my search for more information about this phenomenal achievement? I would appreciate any information that you might be able to help me with. My mailing address is: Chris Hickman 3535 Rothschild Drive Pensacola, Florida 32503 I one interesting piece of information I did find recently was a reference to a book he wrote titled "Ole Man River and Me" chronicling his adventure. Thanks again for all of your help. I am not exactly sure why this story is of such interest to me but I was just so surprised to read the feat had even been accomplished.
