Rachel Carson 1907-1964

About This Collection

Rachel Carson, writer, scientist, and ecologist, grew up simply in the rural river town of Springdale, Pennsylvania. Her mother bequeathed to her a life-long love of nature and the living world that Rachel expressed first as a writer and later as a student of marine biology. Carson graduated from Pennsylvania College for Women (now Chatham College) in 1929, studied at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory, and received her MA in zoology from Johns Hopkins University in 1932.

Through her writings and the videos in this collection she remains an earthsayer and for us, the model of what it is to be a sustainability advocate.


Special thanks to Laura DeSilva of OpenRoadMedia for curating this collection for us.
