Olin Lectures on the Environment at Fairfield University


In a tribute to the 1960s, the 1999 Olin Lectures on the Environment at Fairfield University will take a close look at Rachel Carson's work and the beginning of the environmental movement. Rachel Carson's book, "Silent Spring," appeared in 1962, helping to create the environmental movement that changed the world. Roland Clement of Yale University will moderate the three-part series.

John Atkin of Save the Sound will lead a panel discussion on "What the Scientists Found," on Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 8 p.m. in the Faculty Dining Room of the Barone Campus Center.

Rachel Carson's biographer, Linda Lear, will present a lecture on "What Rachel Carson Did," on Tuesday, Oct. 19, at 8 p.m. in the Oak Room of the Barone Campus Center.

A panel discussion on "What the Pesticide Industry Did About It" rounds out the series on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 8 p.m. in the Oak Room of the Barone Campus Center. Kip Howlett, director of the Chlorine Chemistry Council will lead the discussion.

The Olin Lectures, presented by Fairfield University's Program in Environmental Studies, are made possible by a generous grant from the Olin Corporation Charitable Trust and are open to the public without charge.
