Going to Extremes

Local club invites adventurers to push their limits

Tucked away in Printers Row in Chicago is a little-known clubhouse to some of the most famous adventurers in the world -- the Adventurer's Club of Chicago.

President Teddy Roosevelt was an honorary member, as were members of the Walgreen and Pritzker families.

A suburban mom who's climbed a dozen of the highest mountains peaks in the world, including Everest, has joined the celebrated ranks.  Local author James Campbell, who retraced the steps of WWII soldiers in what was described as one of the cruelest military missions in history, has also joined the club. 

Club President Howard Rosen calls it, "Chicago's best kept secret."
