Happy Birthday Ding! It is Jay N. "Ding" Darling's birthday today and we have the Jay N. Darling Center (Studio #124
) to help celebrate. Ding was a two-time Pulizer Prize winning cartoonist who worked at the Des Moines Register for over four decades. Darling was also the creator of the first Duck Stamp in 1934, founder of the National Wildlife Federation and the Cooperative Research Unit programs found today in 39 Universities around the country. There is also a National Refuge named after him on Sanibel Island in Florida. Come see his legacy today from 2-6PM.
