1926 - 2004
Pierre Crosson, an internationally-known agricultural economist with Resources for the Future who specialized in agricultural sustainability and soil erosion, died November 24, 2004, in Frederick Maryland. He was seventy-eight. While not a geographer, he often worked in geographic ways, interacting with and even collaborating with geographers. His obituary in the Washington Post (November 28, 2004) described him as bringing “independence and real objectivity to a polarized debate.”
