Former U.S. Representative Sherwood Boehlert Joins Wilson Center

Public Policy Scholar Looks Back at 25 Years in Congress

Jan 30, 2007

Former U.S. Representative Sherwood Boehlert (R-N.Y.) joined the Wilson Center as a public policy scholar in January 2007. During his term, which will extend until June, he will research and explore his service on Capitol Hill in a project called "A Look Back at Twenty-Five Years in Congress."

Boehlert will also serve as a scholar for the Environmental Change and Security Program, drawing on his experience as chairman of the House Science Committee, as well as the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee's Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment. During his tenure in Congress, Boehlert supported endangered-species protections, encouraged efforts to safeguard the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve, urged the adoption of caps on greenhouse gases, and argued for higher fuel economy standards.
