LaMont Cole to Sen. Jackson, 1968
A Council of Ecological Advisers is badly needed and it is appropriate for such a council to include engineers and landscape architects. However, a major part of the body should consist of ecologists—authentic environmental biologists who have studied these problems in all their great complexity.
ESA President LaMont C. Cole, writing in 1968 in support of an environmental bill drafted by Sen. Henry Jackson, urged greater use of ecologists as environmental advisors to the government. (Stanley Auerbach Papers, Box 1, Public Affairs Committee 3 file).
