Tom Webb

The Orlo community is deeply saddened by Tom Webb’s passing. Tom was the mischievous, well-read, and enthusiastic core of Orlo and The Bear Deluxe Magazine. Tom led many of our initiatives from traveling environmental education shows, bicycle-in movies, poetry slams, non-fiction writing contests, uprisings and protests, and, of course, editing dozens of issues of the magazine, known as The Bear Essential, The Bear Deluxe, and The Bear, through its history. Tom raised money, wrote grants, interviewed authors, poets, activists, elected officials, and leaders across the country, dug through submissions, planned events, found artists and musicians, organized the board and volunteers, and connected people interested in exploring environmental issues through creative arts. We will miss Tom greatly.
