A BROOK THROUGH TIME                    MPEG4 EXCERPT 3 MIN $$$

THEODORE LYMAN III AND RED BROOK

When pioneering scientist and ecologist Theodore Lyman returned from the American Civil War, he purchased and preserved a brook on old Cape Cod.  At Red Brook he fished and studied ecology, and was determined to successfully hatch and raise trout and other fish.  He was a US Congressman and one of the first Commissioners of Fisheries in Massachusetts. He also helped found Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology, an institution critical to the study and acceptance of the theory of evolution in America.

After three generations of family ownership, Red Brook became the THEODORE LYMAN RESERVE, operated jointly by the Trustees of Reservations, Trout Unlimited and Massachusetts Fish and Game.
