Like environmentalists before him (such as John Muir), Aldo Leopold was a passionate advocate for conservationism. While he contributed to many disciplines, perhaps his best-known work remains "A Sand County Almanac", which was published shortly after his death in 1949. Leopold was a professor of game management at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and this collection from the University of Wisconsin's Digital Collections group brings together his diaries and journals for consideration by scholars and members of the general public. The project was funded in part by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission and visitors are welcome to browse through his voluminous journals at their leisure. Also, visitors can look at the online finding aid to his papers, which may be helpful for those looking to do more in-depth research in person.
