"Man's Role in Changing the Face of the Earth" was the second international symposium sponsored by the Wenner-Gren Foundation. Held in Princeton, New Jersey from June 16-22, 1955, and over three years in development, 'Man's Role" brought together seventy scholars from North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia -- with specializations ranging across more than twenty conventionally defined disciplines, from anthropology to zoology -- who were selected "for their common interest and curiosity about what man has been doing to and with his habitat. Billed as the "first large-scale evaluation of what has happened and what is happening to the earth under man's impress," the conference and its resulting volume are considered benchmarks in the multidisciplinary study of ecological systems."
