Carl was a mentor in the finest. As my graduate advisor and life-long friend, he was able to nuture my lasting curiosity of self and life. As he would say, part joking but more seriously, "Do good, be nice, and help the poor people." I'll miss Carl A.

Carl not only was a 'founding father' of the Amherst Orchid Society, but was a valued member. He generously gave his time at club events. I never saw him without a smile on his face. We shall miss him. Our condolences to his family.

When I applied to be one of Carl's students in the early 70's he said that I would have to find my own funding since he didn't have any research projects at the time. When I moved to Amherst a couple of months before the semester was to start, he referred me to a research project that covered all my expenses the first year. When that project ended he offered me the part time job as office manager for his consulting firm. We weren't forestry students, we were Carl's students. You became part of his family as well as his student. Having a lunch at his house with Alice or sitting at my desk in his front office at Holdsworth Hall, the discussions were always fascinating. In addition to developing a growing understanding of natural resources planning, Carl also taught the very practical course on how to respond to request for proposals--grant writing. I used the lessons from that course for the rest of my career for regional planning agencies, The Environmental Institute at UMass and for a non-profit land trust. I'm still in touch with my fellow students and we often share our memories of our days as “Carl's students”. We all love the landscape, work to protect natural resources, and value good food and beverages.

Carl and I spent many fine hours/days consulting, traveling, fishing,etc., as well as starting my career as a consult and professor. At times there was also a lot of vodka. I miss all those activities. jrv

Carl was my major professor when I was in grad school at the (then) Dept. of Forestry and Wildlife. By then I'd taken his natural resources planning course, heard many of his stories, and came to really appreciate his friendly optimism and effusive nature. I figured his guidance would be more of the same, a light touch and I could do as I pleased. What a shock, when a few of his students were ready, had to take his reading course! It was wide-ranging, mind-expanding, difficult and demanding. The discussions went on for hours, with Carl listening and only occasionally entering in. Where was the old Carl? The four of us left his office reeling after each weekly session. At the end, however, we all realized what a great experience we'd had, the best in grad school. Carl was looking far ahead, preparing us for successful careers that he fully expected us to have.

Carl was a man of many talents: gardening, hunting, woodworking, and of course fly fishing. He was also a very serious student of human uses of natural resources, and I'm glad for his friendship but most of all for his mentoring.

I have many fond memories of Carl. He was a generous and engaging mentor to me when I arrived at UMass in 1984, and he was much beloved by students. Each spring he would gather our interested students and give casting lessons on the lawn, and each year we would eagerly await his free perennials as he prepared his gardens for the season. Carl always had a story to share, a great sense of humor, a robust infectious laugh, and a deep love for the Caribbean where he was an early conservation leader in the region.

We in the Department of Environmental Conservation at UMass celebrate in the memory of Carl, his love of conservation, and his many contributions to our ECo community.
