Event Navigation

Evening Lecture presented by Victoria Johnson

Remembered mainly as the doctor chosen by both Hamilton and Burr to attend their famous duel, Dr. David Hosack’s other achievements are often forgotten. In this lecture, Johnson will discuss Hosack’s lesser known legacy as the founder of the country’s first public botanical garden, who dedicated himself to training the next generation of American doctors and naturalists.
