  • Alces Editors


Dr. Albert W. (Al) Franzmann, age 78, of Soldotna, Alaska, died unexpectedly at his winter home in Green Valley, Arizona on February 13, 2009. Everyone who ever knew Al feels a deep sense of loss, but we are extremely grateful for having known him. Al was a pioneer in wildlife management, particularly in moose management, and cared deeply about our wildlife resources, hunting and trapping, and future wildlife management. Al was a mentor and friend to many and words alone cannot express how he affected our lives, careers, and just how much he meant to us. What follows is Dr. Franzmann’s obituary, which he wrote. His accomplishments and life are well represented.
