Where to begin summarizing this Wall Street Journal profile of Ernie Wolfe ’72?  I am fairly confident that he is the only camouflage-shirt-wearing, Ghanaian-movie-poster-on-flour-sack collecting, buffalo-hunting, scuba-instructing, African-art-dealing, giant-lobster-mausoleum-owning Eph — but I’m ready to stand corrected … Maybe it’s best just to read the story, along with the accompanying slide show.  You think Wolfe can hook me up with a giant Purple Cow coffin?

Wolfe was previously the subject of a New York Times Magazine feature. If both the Journal and the Times are interested, he must be doing something right, or at a minimum, something weird.
