An engineer by training, Lee was a big-game hunter who made his first safari at 19. In the early 1960s, he moved to Angola both to hunt and to establish one of the very first game-protection plans in Africa. He was a master fly fisherman and fly tyer and was the first person to import Tonkin cane to this country for the building of bamboo rods. He was a fine rifle shot, a designer of wildcat cartridges, an explorer and naturalist with museum accreditation, an author of numerous books (good ones, too), the owner of what has been described as the finest firearms collection in the world, an award-winning classic-car collector, an active conservationist, a member of the Explorer's Club, Boone and Crockett, and the National Rifle Association, and a benefactor of several museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is part of it. If you'd like a full list, see his obituary.
