Ellen Swallow: The Woman Who Founded Ecology

This is the remarkable story, by robert Clarke, of that remarkable First Lady of Science who had to her credit more firsts than any woman of her time. Used book in Good Condition. To those who think of ecology as a crusade of our day, public health, pure air, as a scientist, the first person to be concerned with pure water, product labeling for consumers, sanitation, pure food, good soil, it may come as a shock that a woman - one hundred years ahead of her time- was, the fight for women's rights, nutrition, industrial safety, school lunch programs, including the right to be as well educated as men- and much more.

At a time when the earth's population belatedly bleats its rising concern for an environment that threatens to extinguish life in any form, a highly buffed nose is all that recalls the brilliant career of MIT's first woman student; its first woman graduate; and its first woman faculty member - the First Lady of Science and Technology 100 years ago.
