Manus (Jack) Fish, 1928-2010

5 03 2010

Manus “Jack” Fish, long time employee of the National Park Service and regional director of the National Capital Region (which includes the battlefields of Manassas and Antietam) from 1973 to his retirement in 1988, has died after suffering a stroke on February 27.  During his tenure as regional director, he oversaw significant expansion of Manassas National Battlefield Park.  He was big into tree planting, so I’m not sure how he viewed the current trend of restoring view-sheds on the battlefields.  Here is his obituary, and here is a longer biography, from which I got the photo at left.
