Who is founder of Earth Day ?

Gaylord Nelson

Gaylord Nelson, former US Senator, was the founder of Earth Day. He believed strongly that education is the key to changing people's attitudes about the environment and he devoted much of his energy to that challenge. He died at age 89 in July 2005.

Quote from Bill Clinton in 1995 regarding: THE PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM

"The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest honor given to civilians in the United States. Twenty-five years ago this year, Americans came together for the very first Earth Day. They came together because of one American - Gaylord Nelson. As the father of Earth Day, he inspired us to remember that the stewardship of our natural resources is the stewardship of the American Dream. He is the worthy heir of the tradition of Theodore Roosevelt, and I hope that Gaylord Nelson's shining example will illuminate all the debates in this city for years to come."
