A Tribute to John Walter Stowers, Jr.

Members of the Alabama Ornithological Society are grieving for the loss of our long-time friend and supporter, ‘Sto’, John Walter Stowers, Jr., who died on Sunday, July 10, 2017. Sto’s constant generosity and hospitality, and his many acts of kindess to AOS organizers and to individual AOS members can never be fully recognized. A bench will be placed on Dauphin Island honoring Sto for his long-time, exceptional service to the Alabama Ornithological Society at the Fall meeting on October 15, 2016.
