Muskie '36 remembered for first Earth Day on 40th anniversary
“Earth Day serves as an annual reminder of the precious yet precarious state of the environment that sustains human life,” writes Joel Goldstein in the April 22 St. Louis Beacon. “Although that theme deserves its own trumpet, 40 years ago Edmund S. Muskie demonstrated, as only he could, how its message links to other existential values.”
Goldstein was a scholar-in-residence at the Bates’ Muskie Archives last year when he was working on a book about the vice presidency. This article includes a link back to the Archives.
