Connecticut Senator George P. McLean helped establish lasting legal protections for birds, overseeing passage of the 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty Act, landmark environmental protection legislation that is still in effect today.
Please join us for a virtual presentation by Will McLean Greeley, Senator McLean’s great-great nephew. Greeley’s new biography of Senator George P. McLean, A Connecticut Yankee Goes to Washington: Senator George P. McLean, Birdman of the Senate puts McLean’s victory for birds in the context of his distinguished forty-five-year career marked by many acts of reform during a time of widespread corruption and political instability.
