Author Info
Aldo Leopold
The oldest of four in an Iowa family, Aldo Leopold was introduced to the natural world by his father, who took HIS children for hikes through the woods and swamps in the area. Leopold was educated at Yale's School of Forestry (which had just been established) and, for 17 years, worked for the U.S. Forest Service in the Southwest and in Wisconsin, where he taught at the university in the Agricultural Economics Department from 1933 to 1948. In 1935 he was a co-founder of the Wilderness Society with a group of like-minded conservationists. He and his wife and their five children built a small house (known as "The Shack") from a chicken coop on the Wisconsin River; Leopold's famous book, SAND COUNTY ALMANAC was a volume of essays about ecology that he wrote there during weekends with his family. The book was published in 1949, but Leopold died just before its publication when he had a heart attack while he was helping a neighbor put out a grass fire. "The Shack" still survives as the center of a nature preserve.
