Other notable deaths


April 18, 2006

Philip Hyde, 84, whose wilderness photographs helped stir public support for the Sierra Club's efforts to protect the environment, died March 30 in Reno, Nev.

The longtime Northern California resident died of complications from a stroke, said his son, David. The Sierra Club and leader David Brower introduced "battle books" in the 1950s to galvanize support for national parks in the West.

Mr. Hyde's images were featured in Mr. Brower's 1964 book, Time and the River Flowing: Grand Canyon, and in Edward Abbey's 1971 Slickrock. His last book, The Range of Light (1992), included passages from naturalist John Muir's essays paired with Mr. Hyde's observations and photos.
