A History of the Browning Family

In my search to learn more about this town I love, I kept stumbling on familiar names. Eccles, Peery, Browning… Browning? Wait… that caught my interest, Browning? Aren’t those firearms? Turns out, I had much to learn about the huge role Ogden played in the development of American firearms; and the role Browning firearms played in building Ogden City.

Joe is one of Ogden's great Jazz players.  But there's even more to the story, reprinted from the Ogden Independent, with permission.

Step into jazz man Joe McQueen's garage, and you'll see a wheelchair, several pairs of crutches and a wheeled walker – not surprising, of course, as Ogden's legendary sax player turned 90 last month.
