It’s Thursday: (Un)Earth Day

While searching for a local connection to Earth Day this morning, I visited the This Day in Delaware History spot on the Delaware Public Archives site. No Earth Day reference but I noticed that This Day is compiled by Roger Martin, historian. The librarian in me kicked in and a quick Google search revealed that this retired teacher and member of the Delaware General Assembly defines finding/following a learning path across a lifetime. Need proof? Ed Okonowicz wrote a piece about Martin for the UD Messenger in 1998 titled Rummaging for Delaware’s Forgotten History that explains it all. When you read it, you will realize I am not the only one who (un)earthed a few things.

Meanwhile, I’m tracking how often historians, historical documents and rare  books seem to be popping up on my own path lately. Interesting to note, as always…
