Robert Marshall, a visionary conservation hero and the principal founder of The Wilderness Society was the first to leave a bequest to TWS in his will; one quarter of his total estate. Although he died at the young age of 39, only four years after founding TWS, he understood the importance of leaving a bequest to ensure the future of The Wilderness Society and wilderness preservation for generations to come.
