Harry Hutchins joins John Latimer on Tuesday mornings for A Talk on the Wildside.  This week he wanted to talk about national monuments and the Antiquities Act of 1906 that was initially created by President Teddy Roosevelt to prevent looting of Indian artifacts.  The act prevents commercial development or future mineral exploitation.
