Proceedings of the Forest History Association of Wisconsin (1996-2006)

Forest History Association of Wisconsin. Proceedings (1996-2006)

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 21-31 document logging in the Flambeau and Wisconsin River watersheds, the communities of Minocqua, Tomahawk, Wausau, Mosinee, Stevens Point, Sheboygan, and Stanley, the development of the northwoods tourism industry, the counties of Iron and Rusk, log marks, the Oshkosh woodworkers strikes of 1898 and 1900, surveying, Eugene S. Shepard and his hodag hoax, archaeology of the Old Copper Culture, the Peshtigo Fire, logging on the Bad River Indian Reservation, logging railroads, and use of forest products in the aircraft industry. For more articles on Wisconsin logging and lumbering, see volumes 1-10 and 11-20.
