A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 60: Willard Munger Award

Minnesota Natural Resources Foundation, Willard Munger Environmentalist of the Year Award, 1997

"Munger, nicknamed "Mr. Environment," served his west Duluth district in the Minnesota Legislature for 43 years, starting in 1954, with only one two-year interruption, which occurred when he ran unsuccessfully for the state Senate in 1964."

"Munger sponsored or advocated nearly every piece of legislation related to the environment in Minnesota during the last half of the century."
