Description
The Mark Dubois Papers document Dubois's work as an environmental advocate over the course of three decades (1970-2002). An avid river rafter, Dubois began his career as an environmental advocate in 1973, co-founding Friends of the River. Dubois went on to co- found and direct numerous environmental awareness organizations and campaigns, including the California Water Protection Council, the International Rivers Network, and WorldWise. He also served as International Coordinator for Earth Day 1990 and 2000 and has served as an advisor to numerous other groups. The collection has been divided along the lines of his work and contains records of the individual organizations as well as Dubois's personal files from his tenures at each organization.
