Brian Donlevy
Movie star Brian Donlevy called Beaver Dam home in the early 1910's. His father ran the local Woolen Mill. Brian showed an interest in all things military. Brian was the mascot for the Company K Unit here. His zeal for the military got the better of him, when as a teen, he ran off to enlist in the Mexican War. However, he was caught just prior to 'shipping-out' and was returned to his father, who then enrolled him in St. John's Military Academy in Delafield. Brian Donlevy became one of Hollywood's greatest character actors and sometime leading man.
