Jay Norwood â€œDingâ€ Darling is remembered today as one of this country's great conservationists. He was instrumental in founding the National Wildlife Federation, established the national wildlife refuge system, and made the federal â€œduck stampâ€ a reality. He was also an accomplished political cartoonist. Taylor discusses some of his biting cartoons and their influence on conservation.
Bolen discusses the life and activities of political cartoonist and conservationist Jay N. â€œDingâ€ Darling. Although his cartoons were critical of the New Deal, President Roosevelt appointed him head of the Bureau of Biological Survey, the forerunner of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It was Darling's promotion in 1934 of the Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp that secured his legacy. The first stamp sold for $1 and raised $635,000 for conservation efforts. Since then this stamp program has generated over $700 million for conservation.
