Nature Writer Dies

January 8, 1986

BEVERLY, Mass. (AP) _ Dana Storrs Lamb, author and ardent conservationist, has died after a long illness. He was 86.

Lamb, of Ipswich, died Monday at Beverly Hospital.

A retired New York stockbroker and limited partner in the New York City investment firm of Ingalls & Snyder, Lamb was best known for books and articles on the outdoors.

His first book, ″On Trout Streams and Salmon Rivers,″ was published in 1963. Eight other books followed.

All royalties from his books were contributed to the Quebec Labrador Foundation, which he helped organize 25 years ago and which he served as a member of the board of directors until his death.

Lamb, who received the Arnold Gingrich Heritage Award for writing in 1978, attended Dartmouth College and was graduated from Princeton University in 1929.

He is survived by two sons, and a daughter.

A memorial service will be held at a date to be announced.
