Renowned corporate, constitutional and civil rights lawyer Louis Marshall brought his four children, James, Bob, George and Ruth to the Adirondacks to their camp at Knollwood igniting a lifelong love of and dedication to the wilderness in them all. Bob and George would continue their father’s work to protect the wilderness and become well-known preservationists and authors.
The collection was donated by James’ daughter and reflects Louis Marshall’s close ties with the Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks and his determination to protect the Adirondacks and all New York State’s forests and waters. The addendum, works and photographs of Robert Marshall, reveals how faithfully Bob Marshall chose to carry on his father’s work.
