Welcome to the White Lake Environmental History Blog!

Thank you for stopping by! This is a blog for the White Lake Environmental History Project!

I am ready to begin a dialogue on topics of community interest and I welcome your comments.

What is on your mind about White Lake’s environmental history? What questions do you have?  What issue or topic interests you the most?  What would you like to know?

    Just heard the interviews with Frank and Dan, and was impressed by their keen memories of life In the time of Hooker and DuPont. I was also struck by the hesitation or reluctance in their voices about perhaps saying too much? I can understand in Frank’s case as he’s still receiving a pension from his work there, but really, are there people left in the companies that may still be offended by the truth?
    I thought Edie Bogart’s candidness was refreshing–she came across as very sharp and intelligent, even though her participation was indirect during the years when activists like her husband were more confrontational. Thanks for more interviewing Tanya–it’s all creating a full picture of what has happened on White lake!

    Are you planning on doing any interviews with scientists who conducted studies on the lake and provided informed advice to the PAC and constituent communities?

      The primary focus of this first stage of the project was to focus on gaining a variety of viewpoints from a diverse representation of the community – chemical company workers, local governmental representatives, area residents, businesspeople, local activists, and those working on recovery, in order to begin assessing the impact of the area’s environmental history on the community – the main goal of the project. Per your question, please see these interviews: Jeff Auch and Greg Mund, and John Hartig.
