This photo ran on the cover of The San Francisco Chronicle Sunday magazine, where Rob’s article was published. We heard the Tompkinses were unhappy with the choice because it made Doug look angry. He is a complex man, and was, in fact, rather crusty and ornery the day we met him. But we have met him once since then when he visited San Francisco, and he seemed a very gentle man. He is unwavering in his conviction and unafraid to challenge people, institutions and society’s assumptions. He is simultaneously a conservationist, fundraiser, public oracle, strategist, project manager, designer, esthete and many other things. At the end of the day, no matter how many people he pisses off (which is many), he is a hero of conservation and a great role model for other people of considerable wealth.
