Even in retirement, Samuel F. Pryor III reports to his office near Grand Central Station. A 21st Century “Man in the Gray Flannel Suit,” he takes the train from his home in Westchester County, N.Y. everyday and then walks three blocks to Lexington Avenue, in the heart of midtown Manhattan, where he toiled for more than 40 years as a corporate lawyer at Davis Polk & Wardwell. Amidst this concrete canyon Pryor tends to one of his abiding passions: protecting the environment.

Over the years he has scaled mountains, both literally and figuratively. An avid hiker, Pryor and his family have experienced the beauty of open areas, hiking all over the world, from New Hampshire’s White Mountains to the Alps, the Himalayas and even Kilimanjaro.
