Had never heard of Hank and looked him up. Came up under outdoor education, touch of nature center, morel hunting and first ascent of 'under the influence', my favorite climb at Fern Clyffe. Sounds like a cool guy. Was he involved in SLOC as well?
Sad news. Hank was one of the first SLOC orienteers I ever met. I remember talking with him about some of the early US orienteering at Little Grassy Lake.
A quick search found some of those old maps:
Sorry to hear about Hank.
Ha ha! Didn't know you were quoting Shakespere with the title to this thread matzah ball. Here's a bit more about Hank and Touch of Nature:
Sad news. I remember Jeff very well, Hank much less so, but an important SLOC orienteer back in the day. Thanks for sharing.
Excellent article from today's Post Dispatch on Hank's lifetime of promoting outdoor education.
Hank and Bill Comfort were key people with SLOC and SIOC. Great leaders in orienteering and trips to the St Louis/Carbondale area were always a treat.
Starting in orienteering in 1992, I only met Hank a few times. So I was amazed at how many people I knew at reception: orienteering, STREAM, and The College School. 3 people [Jeff, Jim Saunier of STREAM, and college roommate Tony] provided wonderful biographies of Hank.
