RE: who was Bob Marshall? (was - Re: [RC] question for Bob Marshall saddle owners) - Bob Morris

Bob Marshall sounds like quite an interesting man who led one heck of a life. The book begins with Marshal climbing as many peaks in the Adirondacks of New York in one day. At the end of the day, he totaled up the elevation which he had gained to be 13,500 feet. This man led life which was oone of an extremely avid hiker, and widerness advocate.
During his 38 year life,
Marshall engaged in exploring the unchartered Brooks Range in Alaska. Prior to that excursion, he spent three years in the Northern Rockies of Montana conducting tree growth research for the United States Forest Service. It was at that time that Bob Marshall realized his love for hiking.
Hiking along in his typical outfit of loose-fitting blue denim jeans, high-top sneakers, and old tee-shirt, Bob was known to travel an average of 35 miles in one day. Interestingly, after a long day of hiking, he would sometimes go out after supper, and pace up and down his road to round the mileage of the day to an even 40 miles.
During his lifetime, Bob Marshal was also interested in the preservation of the Wilderness. Working for the USFS, acquiring two forestry degrees and a Ph. D in plant physiology, Bob was obviously educated in the sciences. Toward the end of his life, Bob and others were involved in the formation of The Wilderness Society, whos sole purpose was to "battle uncompromisingly" for wilderness protection all over the country. From the East to West coast of America, Bob let his presence be known in his fight to save many of our now cherished wilderness areas.
