Tom Hicks August 25, 2020 at 11:47 am An honor to have met Huey D. Johnson through an introduction from Bill Hutton on a conversation at Ft. Mason among experts on the federal tax deductibility of gifts of water rights. Soon after, I left my litigation job, took a pay cut, and worked for HDJ almost full time in Mill Valley to make this exotic idea a practical tool in everyday voluntary conservation transactions. This time in Huey “boot camp” remains among one of my most significant and formative work experiences because it allowed me to reconnect with my passion for rivers. I am reminded of Aldo Leopold and the value of being a “pragmatic idealist.” Thank you HDJ. R.I.P.
