I too admire both the man and his work. When I lived in SW Florida, I got to know Clyde by stopping by his gallery/home in Big Cypress. Because I worked for the state environment dept., most of our conversations were about the environment, not photography. But he was my introduction into LF. I stopped by one day with my Bronica SQA and he said I really should use a 4x5 at least. Pulled out an old tailboard 4x5, handed it to me and let me play with it around his place. Mostly use nothing but a 4x5 today. Now that I live in NM, I miss going to his place and seeing his work in person. Like an Ansel Adam's photo, they look great in a book or on line, but look truely amazing in person. Luckily I have 4 Clyde's on my walls, including #1 of 3 limited edition print.
