Proceedings of the Forest History Association of Wisconsin (1986-1995)

Forest History Association of Wisconsin. Proceedings (1986-1995)

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 11-20 document tow booms, river rafting, lumberjack tales, lumbering in Eau Claire and Marinette counties, women in the logging industry, logging of the Wolf River watershed, the communities of Tigerton and Oshkosh, the life of Wilhelmine LaBudde, Native American use of nuts and berries, forestry education in the Univ. of Wisconsin System, logging locomotives and trucks, Sylvania and Nicolet National Forests, logging dams, Trees for Tomorrow, the archaeology of logging camps, prominent lumbermen, and peripheral industries such as cranberries, maple syrup, Christmas trees, mushrooms, and ginseng. For more articles on Wisconsin logging and lumbering, see volumes 1-10 and 21-31.
