Jared Diamond
b. 9-10-1937; Boston

Jared Diamond, a professor of geography and physiology, has published more than two hundred articles and several books including the bestseller “Guns, Germs, and Steel,” which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

Journalist, feminist, and environmentalist Marjory Stoneman Douglas is best remembered for her staunch defense of the Everglades against efforts to drain it and claim land for development.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas quotes ~
• “The miracle of light pours over the green and brown expanse of saw grass and of water, shining and slowly moving, the grass and water that is the meaning and the central fact of the Everglades. It is a river of grass.”

William O. Douglas
b. 10-16-1898; Maine Twp, Otter Tail Co., MN
d. 1-19-1980; Washington, DC.

Willaim O. Douglas is the longest-serving justice in the history of the Supreme Court - 36 years and 209 days, 1939-1975. He was appointed by F.D.R.

Douglas, whose father died when he was six, was granted a scholarship and continued to work odd jobs in order to earn a college degree. He then taught high school for several years in order to attend law school.

Douglas was a friend to the environment: reportedly he hiked the entire 2,000 mile Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine, and wrote a dissenting opinion in the landmark environmental law case, Sierra Club v. Morton, 405 U.S. 727 (1972), Justice Douglas famously, and most colorfully argued that “inanimate objects” should have standing to sue in court.

William O. Douglas quotes ~
• “I worked among the very, very poor, the migrant laborers, the Chicanos and the I.W.W's who I saw being shot at by the police. I saw cruelty and hardness, and my impulse was to be a force in other developments in the law.”
• “The Constitution is not neutral. It was designed to take the government off the backs of the people....”
