American Eden: David Hosack, Botany, and Medicine in the Garden of the Early Republic
September 12, 2019 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
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.
