The Legend of Lefty: Anthrax and Groupies

A new profile of Lefty Kreh in Garden and Gun magazine has just been published.

The more I read about this remarkable man, the more I wish I could get to meet him in person.

There’s new information in this article, including how he was exposed to anthrax while working at a biological warfare center after the Second World War (he even has the dubious honor of having a deadly strain of anthrax named after him). What was particularly touching was his memory of his beloved wife who died in 2011. His recovery from his grief found him out fishing again and being invited by a thirty-something woman to a late night tryst – he was 87 at the time (and I’m looking forward to that too).
