41 Years of Earth Day.
The founders were U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson and Denis Hayes. Nelson was a country lawyer, true Wisconsin character, ex-governor and well-liked U.S. senator. Hayes was, and is, a visionary academic and organizer. See this 2005 remembrance, "The Earth Day Senator", appearing in Environmental Protection magazine.
