Remembering Hugh Morton

Friday, June 02, 2006

Hugh Morton, whose camera lens captured some of North Carolina's enduring images and whose passion for environmental causes preserved Grandfather Mountain, died Thursday. He was 85. Morton died at around 6 p.m. from esophageal cancer, said his daughter, Catherine. He was at his home in Linville, at the base of Grandfather Mountain. From courtside at the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill to the heights of the Blue Ridge Mountains he adored, Morton took his camera everywhere. (Tar Heel Blue)
