Rachel Carson ignited the modern environmental movement after a challenging childhood in Pennsylvania during the Great Depression, followed by her graduate study at Johns Hopkins University. Her lifelong love of the sea was only enhanced by finally seeing it when she worked at Woods Hole on Cape Cod. In 1962, after three books about the sea, Carson's Silent Spring catapulted this shy scientist into the limelight. Chemical industrialists were quick to attack her findings about DDT, but President Kennedy's committee validated her findings. This performance highlights Carson's research, personal life, and legacy, from which we still benefit today.
