SHD Members talk about Mapping the U.S.

The "Great American Desert" notation of the
Great Plains from Maj. Stephen Long's expedition.
North Texas PBS station KERA offers an audio interview of three map scholars and SHD members: University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) special collections curator Ben Huseman; Texas Map Society president Gerald Saxon; and Imre Dembardt, Professor of Cartographic History at UTA. Part of their radio series Think with host Krys Boyd, these scholars present a look at how maps relay information about American society as the United States has changed and expanded.
