"Noted author John Hay, whose 1959 book "The Run" became a classic of nature writing, and who was one of the founders of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster, died Saturday in Bremen, Maine. He was 95. Considered by many to be the dean of nature writers, Hay's influence went far beyond the 18 slim volumes he produced in more than 40 years of writing. In 1965, he was awarded the John Burroughs Medal, the nation's highest honor for nature writing, for his book "The Great Beach." "He probably had as much influence on contemporary nature writers as anyone," author Robert Finch of Wellfleet said.... Hay went to St. Paul's School and Harvard and started out as a journalist. He worked for Yank, the military magazine during World War II. He came to Brewster in 1946, built a home and settled in for a life of writing. He and his late wife, Kristi, had three children...."
