Shields "Mr. Shields has hunted successfully every kind of game on this Continent South of the Arctic Circle, with gun and camera, but he quit killing years ago, when game began to gro* scarce. Since that time he has hunted extensively with camera, field glass and note book, and has up a great fund of knowledge of the habits of wild animals and birds. He established Recreation magazine in 1894. He organized the League of American Sportsmen in 1898, and the Camp Fire Club of America in 1897. He was a woodsman and a mountaineer of ripe experience and in one case traveled eight months in the Rocky Mountains, by saddle and pack horse, entirely alone. He visited nearly every State capitol in the country in the interest of game protective legislation, including the Lacey Bird Law and the creation of forest preserves and game refuges, " (David Starr Jordan).
