Tues., July 5 The Energy Crisis- (of the 70s)

Jimmy Carter Presidential Library

Have you heard the phrase: “not since the ‘70s” lately? On February 2, 1977, less than two weeks after assuming the Presidency, Jimmy Carter addressed the nation in a televised “fireside chat” to speak to Americans about the looming Energy Crisis. What tools and resources does the Constitution provide the Executive branch to take on such a crisis? What role do the other branches of government play? This program will examine the 39th President’s response to this crisis through the lens of primary sources of the Carter Library and National Activities.

Tues., July 12, John Muir National Historic Site

Located in Martinez, California, the John Muir National Historic Site and National Historic Landmark is where Muir lived and worked during the period of his greatest influence in conservation. Muir’s marriage to Louisa (Louie) Strentzel in 1880 and role in the management of her family’s extensive fruit ranch provided him with the financial security, social connections, and support necessary to commit himself to the movement. From his “scribble den” on the second floor of the Victorian-Italianate Strentzel-Muir house, Muir mounted letter writing campaigns and penned

his most important books including The Mountains of California (1894) and Our National Parks (1901). Muir’s writing and advocacy during his years in Martinez were instrumental to the establishment of early national parks and forest reserves. The Muir Home also offers opportunities to grapple with critical interpretations of Muir’s life and legacy. The property reveals tensions and intersections between the various sides of Muir as the solitary mountaineer, the wealthy grower and family breadwinner, and the passionate advocate for nature.
