Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Beach Museum of Art KSU

The Kansas State Univrsity Beach Museum of Art will host at 6:30 p.m. a KSU faculty panel who will  examine the work of Manhattan native sons David Fairchild, Charles Marlatt, and Walter Swingle.

As outlined in the book“The Food Explorer: The True Adventures of the Globe-Trotting Botanist Who Transformed What America Eats” by Daniel Stone, Fairchild was responsible for introducing to the United States many of the foods we grow and eat today. With those introductions came uncontrolled presence of invasive insect species.  

The positive and negative impacts of Fairchild’s historic treks will be discussed by a multidisciplinary group of K-Kansas State faculty participating include John Ruberson from entomology; Bonnie Lynn-Sherow from history; Matt Sanderson from sociology; Jane Marshall from food, nutrition, dietetics and health; and Bill Schapaugh from agronomy. 

The event is free and open to the public.

This event is part of the Kansas State University Science Communication Week activities sponsored by the Kansas State University Global Food Systems Initiative.
