Fifty years have passed since the publication of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, the book many credit with sparking the environmental movement -- and an anniversary worth celebrating on Earth Day, April 22.

The book has deep connections to Michigan State University, from the late MSU ornithologist George Wallace’s research that was featured prominently in the book to the establishment of the Rachel Carson Chair in Sustainability at MSU and a legacy of environmental science research being conducted today.
