When: Sat., May 19, 5-6 p.m. 2018

A talk with legislative aide to Assemblyman Maurice D. Hinchey from 1982-1992, Vernon B. Benjamin recognized that Maurice Hinchey was a seminal part in the rise of environmentalism in New York. While writing the second half of his two-volume "History of the Hudson River Valley", he came to realize the events during 1962-1992, set the stage for a convergence of history and environmentalism that persists today.
