Norman Strung began contributing to F&S in the mid-1960s when he was an English professor at Montana State University in Bozeman. One of our most eclectic contributors, he did everything from elk hunting to saltwater fishing. He was a highly disciplined writer whose output was prodigious, but he did not live to see his 50th birthday.
Born into a well-to-do family, Strung went to an exclusive prep school in the East. But instead of going on to college, he got on a train for Montana. When his father asked what he would do, he replied, “The best I can.”
