Kurk Dorsey – Of Mallards and Men

Kurk Dorsey, Associate Professor of History, University of New Hampshire, received his BA at Cornell University, his MA at Northwestern University and his PhD at Yale. His current fields of research are US foreign policy, environmental history and history of Canada.

Professor Dorsey approaches the history of the environmental movement’s signal law, the migratory bird act and treaty, as a multifaceted puzzle with multiple actors, many skirmishes and an accident of history when it was signed by President Taft on the last day of his presidency—a signature which Taft denied forever after!
