Description:
Mr. Sive served as an infantryman in the ETO during World War II. He earned his law degree at Columbia on the GI Bill and later worked on landmark environmental cases, including Scenic Hudson Preservation Conference v. Federal Power Commission 354 F.2d 608 (2d Cir. 1965), which led to federal environmental protection acts. He founded the Sive, Paget, and Riesel law firm and became known as "the Founding Father of Environmental Law." Working with local and national environmental organizations, such as the Sierra Club, Mr. Sive also helped shape legislation that preserved the Adirondacks and Catskills in New York State.
