This video series is part of the American Geographical Society’s new “A Conversation with the Chief Reader” segment, a new resource for teachers, and was prepared in recognition of 2022’s 100th anniversary of the Geographer position as we celebrate of the 100th anniversary of the Office of the Geographer.
