Flowers Author, artist, naturalist, youth worker, TV and radio personality, lecturer. By he was working as a commercial artist with Electric City, a large Buffalo advertizing firm. He was a frequent contributor to The Totem Board, the national magazine of the Woodcraft League, which was published from at least January until the mids.
His career as a popularizer of natural history was said to have begun about when he showed some watercolor paintings with lengthy captions to a group of publishers in New York City.
Nicholas Magazine bought the first set for publication. This eventually led to a career at the museum beginning in as Assistant Curator of Education. He took on full curatorship two years later. With his wife, Zetta, he traveled widely throughout Canada, the United States and Mexico studying the cultures of the Iroquois, Blackfoot, Apache, Pueblo, and Navajo — particularly their craftsmanship and methods of living off the land.
His long association with the Iroquois of Western New York led to his being made an honorary member of the Seneca Beaver clan. Two of these titles, "Wildwood Wisdom" and "Tracks and Trailcraft", are still in print nearly a half century after his death and are considered classics of their genre.
For many years he wrote a regular column, Nature Trails, for the Buffalo Evening News, and later a widely-syndicated newspaper feature called Wonder Trails. With moderator Virgil Booth, he would discuss nature studies, woodcraft and Native American lore, often exhibiting small animal "guests" from the Buffalo Zoo and showing film footage from his travels.
He frequently appeared on radio as well. Further to all of this, his involvement on the boards and committees of professional and civic organizations are too numerous to mention.
