Dr. Henry A. Wright was born June 1, 1935, in Modesto, California and died October 23, 1994, in Lubbock, Texas. Dr. Wright was a Horn Professor at Texas Tech University and served a Chairman of the Department of Range and Wildlife Management from 1980 to 1990.
Without question, Henry's research in the use of prescribed burning on rangeland revolutionized traditional brush and weed control. Through his research, extension efforts, classroom education, and special workshops, fire became an accepted ecological tool used to control brush and weeds on rangelands and to restore grasslands as we believe they once existed. His legacy is evidenced by the many students that he trained who became leaders in a natural resource profession.
