”Victoria Johnson’s dedication to studying the extraordinary life and times of Dr. David Hosack is easy to see--and feel--from the very beginning of her lecture. Through her passionate narrative and beautiful imagery, Johnson masterfully gives life to a physician, botanist and educator of great significance to the history of our emerging nation, whose contributions might otherwise have been forgotten. Her presentation is one of the most interesting and engaging I have ever attended.”
—Michael J. Balick, Ph.D., The New York Botanical Garden
