Aldo Leopold

I received the following inquiry recently and wnated to pass it along in case anyone knows of such a link.

I am curious to know if Ernest T. Seton knew Aldo Leopold. Did they ever meet? Both of these men spent some part of their lives in New Mexico, a state I recently visited. While there, I toured the Philmont Museum and Seton Memorial Library. The people there did not know of any connection between these two men.

For those who may not be familiar with Leopold, he is considered by many to be the father of wildlife management. His classic work is Sand County Almanac, which is defintiely worth reading.

He lived in New Mexico in the earrly part of the 20th Century, marrying a woman from Santa Fe. He relocated to Wisconsin in the early 1920s, probably before Ernest Thompson permanently relocated to the Santa Fe area,
