Jay D. Hair, who helped turn the National Wildlife Federation into the nation's largest membership-based environmental organization, died Friday after a five-year battle with bone marrow cancer. He was 56.
Former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell once described him as "the most respected member of the nation's environmental community."
Hair was president of the federation from 1981 to 1995, a period when the group's membership swelled to 6 million people.
A former zoology professor at Clemson and North Carolina State universities, Hair was appointed by former Presidents Bush and Clinton to several advisory committees, including Clinton's Council on Sustainable Development.
While at the federation, he established the Corporate Conservation Council, designed to teach businesses about environmental issues.
