In 1953 Walter Harding and Albert Einstein exchanged letters about Thoreau and his influence throughout the world.
Professor Harding was a well-respected scholar who dedicated his life to seeing Thoreau's work gaining its due merit. This New York Times Obituary shows the extent of his hard-work and dedication.
The Thoreau Society decided to dedicate its Spring 1996 bulletin to Walter Harding since he recently passed away. It covers his work, contribution to the the Thoreau Society, and what they know will be his lasting influence on studying Walden.
