Here’s Aldo Leopold’s younger brother, Frederic, munching on an apple in what has to be 1904’s cutest golfing outfit. Frederic grew up to run the family office furniture business, the Leopold Desk Company.
He was also very active in the conservation movement, like his famed brother (apples don’t fall far from the sibling tree either). Frederic was particularly concerned about the fate of the wood duck, which faced extinction by the 1930s. Leopold introduced him to one of his graduate students, Arthur Hawkins, who got him started designing houses for wood ducks. He also conducted extensive studies of their mating and nesting habits.
It’s unclear what happened to his golf game after this photo.
