A. Winton Dahlstrom,72, a lawyer and environmental activist who challenged chemical companies and government officials, died of cancer Monday in Montague, Mich.

He was instrumental in shutting down Hooker Chemical Co. and other companies that polluted White Lake. Hooker finally closed in 1982, and the company has spent more than $20 million cleaning up its tainted property.

Mr. Dahlstrom received the Whitehall Distinguished Citizen Award and the Muskegon County Environmental Excellence Award in 1995, and the Jefferson Award in 1980 for public service.
