Santa Clara University history professor Nancy Unger talked about the role of women in American environmental history, from the nineteenth century journeys across the prairies to the publication of Rachel Carson’s seminal book, Silent Spring. Illustrating her talk with many images, Professor Unger argued that women realized the dangers of unregulated exploitation of natural resources and were early advocates for conservation and protection of endangered species.
