A Conversation with Mark Rosenthal, Retired Curator of Mammals at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
One of the oldest zoos in the nation, the Lincoln Park Zoo has been a leader in the zoo field for over a century. No one knows this better than Mark Rosenthal, retired Curator of Mammals from the zoo. He has an intimate knowledge of its history few have both from personal experience and documenting the stories of others. Rosenthal authored The Ark in the Park, a book on the history of the zoo, and since retirement has been involved with the Zoo and Aquarium Video Archive, which contain hours upon hours of video interviews with retired zoo professionals.
