For all you folks in the south sound area. The Washington State Legislature will be honoring Wolf Bauer February 26th at 10:00 am. They are passing a resolution to honor Wolf for all his contributions to the region two days after his 98th birthday! Everyone is invited.

Thanks for the note, Jeff.

I'd like to attend, but have a previous commitment that day.

For those who are not familiar with Wolf Bauer, here is a 2005 profile that describes his many accomplishments:

On the evening of April 9, there will be an event at The Mountaineers in Seattle to celebrate the release of a book about Wolf's life. I'll make sure there is a formal announcement before the event. But interested folks may want to mark their calendars. It's not every day that you have a chance to meet a 98-year-old living legend.

Happy 100th Birthday - Wolf Bauer
« Reply #5 on: 02/25/12, 09:16 PM »



Wolf Bauer (right) and 98 year-old sister Friedl celebrate Wolf's 100th birthday with friends in Anacortes.


A small group of family members and old friends celebrated the 100th birthday of Wolf Bauer today in Anacortes. Wolf was born on February 24, 1912 in Bavaria. His life story was published two years ago in Crags, Eddies and Riprap: The Sound Country Memoir of Wolf Bauer, which he co-authored with Lynn Hyde:

http://www.amazon.com/Crags-Eddies-Riprap-Country-Memoir/dp/0615333532/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330231833&sr=8-1

A shorter profile of Wolf was published in the Northwest Mountaineering Journal in 2005:

http://mountaineers.org/NWMJ/05/051_Bauer1.html

Representatives of the Mountain Rescue Association presented Wolf with an engraved ice axe commemorating his co-founding of the association over fifty years ago. Dee Molenaar and Jim and Lou Whittaker offered their gratitude to Wolf for his contributions to climbing safety and instruction. Hugh Shipman of the Department of Ecology spoke of Wolf's influence on shoreline ecology in the Northwest. There were several other tributes and warm stories about Wolf's life.

Wolf has slowed down a little since his book signing party in 2010 (at which he danced a jig to Dee Molenaar's yodeling!). But he's in good health and as inspiring as ever. We all have our heroes and Wolf is at the top of my list.

Here's to a living Northwest legend as he begins his second hundred years...
