On the next episode of Doc Chat, on March 4 at 3:30pm, NYPL's Meredith Mann is joined by Roberta J.M. Olson, Curator of Drawings at the New-York Historical Society Museum & Library, to discuss the early days of the wildlife conservation movement and the Audubon Society's campaign to stop the killing of birds for women's hats and clothing.

Doc Chat is a weekly, 30-minute program series from the New York Public Library that digs deep into the stories behind the Library’s most interesting collections and highlights ways that teachers can incorporate them into the classroom.
