Established by Aaron Richmond in 1938, the Series has evolved into New England's major presenting organization with over 100 performance and outreach activities annually.
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.
