Edward H. Burtt Jr: Alexander Wilson

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, November 14, 2013 - 9:30am

Alexander Wilson founded American ornithology and his eight-volume masterwork remains one of the great American scientific endeavors. Though many people know of John James Audubon, few people have even heard of Wilson. Tonight on Inquiry we will help to change that when we speak with EDWARD H. BURTT JR., The Cincinnati Conference Professor of Zoology at Ohio Wesleyan University. His new book, written with William E. Davis Jr, is ALEXANDER WILSON: THE SCOT WHO FOUNDED AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY. This book is a long overdue biography of Wilson as well as a beautiful appreciation of his art and an assessment of his work.

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
