1998 FWOC Resolution No. 24:
Remembering Ernest Dickerman
|Ernest M. Dickerman, one
of our country's most noted wilderness advocates, passed away on July
31, 1998 at his farm at Buffalo Gap, Virginia. He was 87.
|Ernie began his career in
Tennessee. One of the earliest members of the Wilderness Society,
he was a passionate advocate of wilderness and wild places everywhere,
especially in the East. A long-time lobbyist for the Wilderness
Society, he was widely known as the father of the eastern Wilderness
of 1975. His other great cause was the protection of the Arctic
National Wildlife Refuge.
|Ernie was a role model and
inspiration to several generations of young people and a mentor to
hundreds of individuals. The Federation of Western Outdoor Clubs
will miss Ernie, and all member groups and members extend our sympathy
to his family.
