This was posted to an email list, from David South, Professor at Auburn University.  I think it's pretty interesting, particularily the Gifford Pinchot articles.  For those that are not aware, Pinchot was the first chief of the Forest Service and considered the father of modern forestry in the US.

great links to the glorious past. :)

i pasted this from

It was at Grey Towers that James Pinchot first encouraged his son to explore the profession of forestry. But such training did not yet exist in the United States, so, after graduating from Yale University in 1889, Gifford went abroad to study at LEcole Nationale Forestiere in Nancy, France.

When I got home at the end of 1890 . . . the nation was obsessed by a fury of development. The American Colossus was fiercely intent on appropriating and exploiting the riches of the richest of all continents.
With equal fervor Pinchot set to work. In the next two decades he raised forestry and conservation of all our natural resources from an unknown experiment to a nationwide movement. He became head of the Division of Forestry in 1898 and under President Theodore Roosevelt was named Chief Forester of the redefined U.S. Forest Service. National forest management was guided by Pinchots principle, the greatest good of the greatest number in the long run. His magnetic personal leadership inspired and ignited the new organization.
During his government service, the number of national forests increased from 32 in 1898 to 149 in 1910 for a total of 193 million acres. Pinchot and Roosevelt together made conservation public issue and national policy. Roosevelt considered the enactment of a conservation program his greatest contribution to American domestic policy. In speaking of Gifford Pinchots role:

". . . among the many, many public officials who under my administration rendered literally invaluable service to the people of the United States, Gifford Pinchot on the whole, stood first."
Theodore Roosevelt
