The first textbook on conservation in the United States, 1910
The conservation of natural resources in the United States
Charles Van Hise, president of the University of Wisconsin, produced this survey of major conservation issues in 1910. Van Hise believed that the basic principles of conservation should be extended beyond nature to include man himself. He interpreted the conservation movement as a pivotal shift in history that required concern for the needs of humanity as a whole, rather than just the individual.
