Tom Wisner, Bard of the Chesapeake
In 2009, staff writer Jenna Johnson wrote a profile of Tom Wisner, who made a career out of writing and singing about the natural beauty of the Chesapeake Bay.
Mr. Wisner, who died April 2 at age 79, was part scientist, part wandering troubadour, part environmental conscience. He was a friend of Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, and always summoned the musically inclined governor up on stage whenever he saw him in the audience.
Be sure to check the gallery of photos of Mr. Wisner on washingtonpost.com, as well as this short video of him singing a folk song:
