American Eden
(Union, SC) History and nature’s beauty become one in “American Eden: David Hosack, Botany, and Medicine in the Early Republic.” Victoria Johnson tells the story of David Hosack, a long-forgotten man that was once a strong figure in New York City.  Not only was he the physician to both Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr in their infamous duel, he also founded the first American botanical garden on a plot of land, which has since been replaced by Rockefeller Center. Hosack played a great role in New York by co-founding its first art museum, first natural history museum, and the New-York Historical Society.
New York Times book reviewer Marta McDowell says, “In her ambitious and entertaining book Johnson connects past to present. David Hosack’s garden may have been short-lived, but in our parks, gardens, medical practices and pharmacology, his efforts continue to bear fruit."
Piedmont Physic Garden is excited to host Victoria Johnson on her American Eden book tour, followed by a wine and cheese reception, on Thursday, July 19th from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. Johnson will stop in the Upstate as she travels through the East Coast. She started her tour at the New York Botanical Garden, one of the places she conducted research for the book.
Victoria Johnson is a professor of urban policy and planning at Hunter College in New York City. Johnson earned a philosophy degree from Yale and a sociology doctorate from Columbia. She currently teaches “the history of philanthropy and New York City.”
Registration is required, as seating is limited. General admission is $20. PPG members receive a discount.
