UVM acid rain researcher dies at 84

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Hubert "Hub" Vogelmann, the University of Vermont scientist who helped document air pollution damage to trees on one of the state's most famous mountains, has died at age 84.

Vogelmann died Friday at the Respite House in Williston. No cause of death was released.

In a statement released by UVM, Vogelmann's family says they're saddened to report his passing.

A native of Buffalo, N.Y., Vogelmann received a Ph.D. in botany from the University of Michigan. He worked at UVM from 1955 through 1991.

The Burlington Free Press reports Vogelmann was perhaps best known for his November 1982 article in "Natural History" called "Catastrophe on Camel's Hump," which traced the decline of an uplands habitat on the mountain now featured on the Vermont quarter.
