DOING WELL BY DOING GOOD The industrial ecology of Henry and Peggy Sharpe


here does the shape of a person’s life really begin? Is it in the little dams built by a girl in a fishing stream in western Pennsylvania while a father casts for trout? Is it in the freedom beloved by a boy let loose among the woods, water and energetic cousins of a summer colony in Maine? When Peggy and Henry Sharpe look back on their lives, memories of summers they each spent in the northern woods beckon. Peggy Sharpe, raised in Florida, eventually came to Rhode Island School of Design in Providence to study landscape conservation. There she met Henry Sharpe, a recent graduate of Brown University, where he had been co-editor of the college newspaper.
