The Art of Conservation: A Visit with Ding Darling

In this 45 minute presentation, Tom Milligan performing the role of Jay N. “Ding” Darling, visits with the audience, as an old friend, in his 11th office at The Des Moines Register. Beginning with his early years in Sioux City where as a young boy where he became aware of the natural world around him as well as his developing skills as an editorial cartoonist, he recalls his remarkable life journey. His story continues to include 2 Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoons for The Register and a remarkable career as a nationally known conservationist.
