A 90-year old was the oldest ranger in Yosemite National Park where he began working in 1930. He lived alone in a tent cabin, listened to classical music, read Shakespeare and passionately sang opera. He had John Muir's writings as a young boy and was inspired to study botany, zoology and geology. He continued leading interpretive walks five days a week in Tuolomne Meadows and afterwards, relaxed smoking his pipe with a cup of coffee.
