Caroline Van Kirk Bissell, Chautauqua's 'bat lady' was born in Pittsburgh, PA and began spending her summers at the Chautauqua Institution in 1946 when bats were extremely plentiful in the area.

She has given 'bat chats' to Chautauqua audiences, book clubs, garden clubs, church groups, Road Scholars, and private family groups during the past 16-years.

She has participated in bat studies on the Amazon River in Brazil, Australia, and Chiricahua Mountains of Arizona.
