Actor Tom Milligan will portray Jay N. “Ding” Darling as he visits with the audience, as an old friend, in his 11th office at The Des Moines Register.

From the introduction of The Duck Stamp to the creation of the National Wildlife Federation, Darling’s influence was felt not only through his cartoons but his actions as well.
