Matheson holds book launch for Pulitzer winner

UF professor Jack E. Davis

The Matheson History Museum will host Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jack E. Davis on March 5 at 4 p.m. to launch his latest book, “ The Bald Eagle: The Improbable Journey of America’s Bird.”

Davis is a UF professor and won the 2018 Pulitzer in history for his book, “The Gulf, the Making of an American Sea.”.

At the Mathson, Davis will talk about his new work that chronicles five centuries of the bald eagle—a species exclusive to North America—from interactions with indigenous people to recent growth in population after years of decline.
