In a very unsophisticated manner, Woolsey applied for a federal presidential pardon never expecting to get it. George W. Bush granted the pardon for no apparent reason. In my opinion Bush is an outdoors man himself and likely felt some type of affinity towards Woolsey’s simple application.
This pardon is noteworthy because Yarrow is an unmatched philanthropist. Yarrow has donated countless hours, ideas and his own money to various charities around the world. He started a program to educate young people not just on academics but how to act in society.
