Scott Einberger is an independent environmental historian and the author of The History of Rock Creek Park: Wilderness and Washington, DC, which he is updating and expanding into a new edition. One of the most significant players of the modern environmental movement, Stewart Udall served as the Secretary of the Interior under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.
