Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Winn was on the Board of Trustees of the Mountaineers during 1985-1986.

Winn chaired the Mountaineers' Conservation Division during 1988-1990 and then served an additional term as chair of the Mountaineers Conservation Division from ca. 1998-Dec. 2001. He was not on the Mountaineers Board of Directors during this second term as chair.

Winn was president of the Washington Wilderness Coalition from 1990 until late January 1993.

He was past president of the Mountaineers, served on the Mountaineers Books Management Board in 1982 and on Mountaineers committees to find a new club room (1981, 1983) and to deal with its operational problems.

Winn chaired a Mountaineer committee to investigate a fatal accident during a Mountaineer scramble of Sluiskin Squaw on October 14, 1978. At this time he was apparently given a file on the July 13, 1969 fatal accident involving a Mountaineers climbing party on Mt. Rainier.

Norman Winn represented The Mountaineers in the deliberations among evironmental organizations and Plum Creek Timber Company. Plum Creek exchanged 60,000 acres of timberland, including 20,000 acres of old growth and 40,000 acres of key wildlife habitat, with the Forest Service for 15,000 acres of commerical timberland.
