 This page is an interim step for my WWI Centennial living history portrayal of Dr. Isaiah Bowman. 

One hundred years ago, the USA ascended the world stage aided by the unseen work of geographers. Then Director of the American Geographical Society, Dr. Bowman, forcefully marshaled both the talents and tenets of geography toward global politics by assembling The Inquiry.
