ABSTRACT
The article features Clarence Petty, who was described by "The New York Times" as one of the most important and inspirational figures in the history of the Adirondack Park. He grew up hiking, hunting, fishing, canoeing and snowshoeing the woods that currently make up the Adirondack Park. Knowing he wanted a career in the woods, he attended Syracuse University College of Forestry. In 1970, Governor Nelson Rockefeller created a commission to study the future of the Adirondacks and wanted Petty to serve on the commission.
