Images from the Aldo Leopold Papers, 1903-1948.


Leopold (1886-1948) is often considered the father of the modern environmental movement. After a career researching and teaching ecology and game management, he came to the University of Wisconsin in 1933. He is best known for A Sand County Almanac (1949), a posthumous collection of essays. After his death, many of his personal papers came to the University of Wisconsin, who have mounted a selection of them available through the link below.

These 190 images are largely photographs illustrating his life, with some representative pages from his journals and other manuscript materials. Scroll down until you see the collection title, "Images from the Aldo Leopold Papers, 1903-1948" and then click on it.
