93 years ago. November 17, 1926 was the day Carl Ethan Akeley died on the remote heights of Mt. Mikeno in what was then still the Belgian Congo. He lived only 62 years but created an incomparable legacy in taxidermy. Somebody has put a token of love and remembrance at the Akeley Monument Stone up there in Clarendon, NY. Thank you from all of us who still reverence the man and his gifts to us all. Photo courtesy of John Janelli.
