Dinosaur Wars Program at Riordan Mansion State Historic ParkBrown Bag Lecture: Dinosaur Wars


Presented by Kevin Schindler

The Gilded Age is remembered as a time of corruption and unscrupulous behavior among businessmen and politicians. This nefarious behavior transcended into science, where two paleontologists—Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh—went from friendly collaborators to bitter rivals. Through thievery, bribery, and bullying, they tried to outdo and embarrass each other at every step. In the process, they led expeditions around the American West that led to some of the greatest dinosaur discoveries ever. Free
