Additional recommended knowledge
At the time the landmark anti-pesticide book Silent Spring was published (1962), Velsicol was the sole manufacturer of chlordane and heptachlor, two since-banned pesticides that feature prominently in the book. Velsicol threatened legal action against Silent Spring's publisher, though ultimately no such action was taken.
