Proceedings of the Forest History Association of Wisconsin (1976-1985)

Forest History Association of Wisconsin. Proceedings (1976-1985)

In 1976, a group of scholars, local historians, collectors, and other people interested in the history of logging and lumbering in Wisconsin formed the Forest History Association of Wisconsin (FHAW). They have met every year since to read and discuss papers, which have been published in these Proceedings. Although these are not primary sources, we have included them at Turning Points in Wisconsin History because they bring together a wealth of useful scholarship not easily found elsewhere and because the earlier volumes are now extremely rare. Because they total more than 1,500 pages, we have broken the series into three separate sequences.
Some of the articles in volumes 1-10 document school forests, log marks, remarkable tree sizes, tanneries, John F. Deitz and the Cameron Dam, the Northern Wisconsin Settler Relocation Project, logging on the Lac Court Oreilles and Menominee Indian Reservations, the Civilian Conservation Corps, forest fire protection, and the towns of Merrill and Drummond, Wis. For more articles on Wisconsin logging and lumbering, see volumes 11-20 and 21-31.
