"Henry Bergh: Animal Advocate, New Yorker, Unitarian,

and “Riddle Of The 19th Century”

via Zoom - open invitation

Sunday, November 22nd, 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Dr. Unti, a scholar and recognized authority on the animal protection movement, will speak about Henry Bergh, the 19th-century member of All Souls who founded the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in 1866. Bergh used the media to bring attention to the cruelty inflicted on animals in many contexts and was sometimes called "The Great Meddler."  Our minister at the time, Rev. Henry Whitney Bellows, worked with Bergh to found the ASPCA, and Peter Cooper, another prominent member of the church, was also on the board of the ASPCA. Dr. Unti will discuss Bergh's work within its historical context, and will also be able to speak to current concerns relating to animal welfare.
