Ecologist Stephanie Mills
October 19, 2001
Ms. Mills has written and spoken on ecology and social change since her Mills College commencement speech in 1969, in which she announced that she would forego having children due to concerns about overpopulation and its effects on the environment. Her writings include: Whatever Happened to Ecology (Sierra Club Books, 1989), an account of the evolution of her ecological consciousness and commitment, and In Service of the Wild (Beacon Press, 1995), a book about restoring and reinhabiting damaged land. Mills edited In Praise of Nature (Island Press, 1990), a compilation of reviews of and excerpts from major works of environmental literature, as well as Turning Away from Technology: A new Vision for the 21st Century (Sierra Club Books, 1997), which reflects her choice in life to be "willfully backward about technology."
