This section of the site contains several works whose only connection is that they involve the presentation of RDA’s ideas in another form besides writing: namely, his audio recordings of insects, his scientific illustrations, cartoons, folk art, songs, and audio or video presentations. The links above will take you to separate pages, all of which have this menu at the top.
Like most young people, RDA was a lover of song and drawing long before he took seriously to writing. During college and graduate school, before he ever published a single word, he was a collector of the sounds of nature, especially those of the singing insects; and in those same days he was also briefly employed as a scientific illustrator. Not all of his forays into the arts were entomological, however. Throughout his life he drew pictures, some of which appear in the popular or nostalgic works of his retirement. Even more extensively he wrote songs and preserved those he had heard, especially in his childhood. References and links to many such works can be found on the page devoted to his writings; but the media pages here provide a more direct experience of RDA’s audio and visual creations.
