Arrangement and Description

The correspondence in this collection is arranged in chronological order. When more than one letter bears the same date, these are in alphabetical order by surname of the correspondent. Speeches are arranged chronologically under each speaker. Material relating to the meetings of the Public Land Law Review Commission are in chronological order. Information on the studies prepared for the commission are in order by RFP (Request for Proposals) number, or, if there is no RFP, by the date of the study plan. The final studies themselves were assigned numbers by the commission, and are shelved in order by that number.

Scope and Content

The Public Land Law Review Commission papers of A.B. Curtis are contained in seven large file boxes; the reports prepared for the commission occupy several shelves in the library archives. Among the types of material found in this collection are press releases and memoranda issued by the commission, A.B. Curtis's commission related correspondence, speeches of commission members, especially Wayne Aspinall and Milton Pearl, material relating to the public meetings of the commission (of particular interest are Curtis's own memoranda of these meetings which he circulated to his close friends) and the reports prepared for the commission to assist it in making its own recommendations to the President and Congress.

In addition to the material in the archives, the Special Collections library photograph collection contains many of the photographs Curtis took while on PLLRC tours.


Administrative/Biographical History

A.B. "Bert" Curtis was born on a ranch near Salem, Oregon, August 1, 1903. His parents, Charles Garret Curtis of Independence, Missouri, and Elizabeth Ann Milne, who was born near Dundee, Scotland, were early pioneers. The family moved to Orofino, Idaho, in 1912 where Charles Curtis operated a hotel for a time before returning to ranching.

Having attended high school in both Orofino and Plummer, Bert entered the University of Idaho where he remained for one year. He then attended Lewiston State Normal School where he received his teacher's diploma after two years of study. He taught and coached athletics in Fernwood for a while, then returned to the University of Idaho for two more years. On December 21, 1920, A.B. Curtis married Alene Honeywell of Clear Lake, South Dakota. They had five children, four sons and a daughter.

In 1927 Curtis was appointed Assistant Chief Fire Warden for the Clearwater Timber Protective Association; a year later he was appointed Chief. In 1945 he was made Chief Fire Warden and Manager of the Potlatch Timber Protective Association, and in that same year he became State Fire Warden. In 1966 the Clearwater and Potlatch Timber Protective Associations combined and Curtis remained Chief Fire Warden of the new organization until he retired in August 1968. He was president of two mining concerns, Orofino Lime Products and Oxford Copper Mining Company near Pierce. He represented Idaho as a Director on the Inland Waterways Association, and was a founding member of the University of Idaho Advisory Research Council. In 1956 he received a national award for outstanding service in state, federal, and private forestry. From 1965 to 1970 he represented the timber interest as a member of the Advisory Council of the Public Land Law Review Commission.

In 1951 Bert Curtis was elected mayor of Orofino, a position he held for some 20 years. In 1958 he tried unsuccessfully to unseat Gracie Pfost, the Democratic incumbent representing Idaho's First District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

At the time this inventory was prepared (October 1980) Curtis was still living in Orofino.

THE PUBLIC LAND LAW REVIEW COMMISSION

Public law 88-606 passed by Congress in 1964 established the Public Land Law Review Commission to conduct a comprehensive review of the policies applicable to the use, management, and disposition of the public lands of the United States. Public lands, as defined by the law and included in the commission study, were public domain, federal reservations other than Indian, all national forests, wildlife refuges and ranges; these lands comprised about one-third of the area of the nation. The law also set a deadline of December 31, 1968, for the commission to make its final report to the President. After Congressional hearings held in April 1967 an eighteen month extension was granted.

The commission was composed of nineteen members, six appointed by the President of the United States, six by the president of the Senate and six by the Speaker of the House; the nineteenth member was chosen by the first eighteen to act as chairman. Due to election results in the years of the commission's existence the membership changed slightly. The first organizational meeting was held on July 14, 1965. An advisory council of eight federal government and twenty-five non federal government members was appointed by the commission; governors of the states were also asked to name representatives to work with the commission and advisory council.

The commission held public hearings in various sections of the country and the members of the commission, advisory council and governors' representatives toured the public lands of each area after the meetings. Reports on many aspects of public land problems were written, many by outside agencies, and from these reports the commission compiled its final report, One Third of the Nation's Land, which it presented to President Richard Nixon on June 27, 1970. The commission ceased to exist on December 22, 1970.

Beginning in June 1966 the Public Land Law Review Commission held a series of public meetings around the country for the purpose of hearing and seeing regional problems first hand. In April 1968 the first of several hearings on the various reports prepared for the PLLRC was held. Listed below, in chronological order, is a brief description of the contents of the folders for these meetings. A.B. Curtis did not attend the first two meetings, those held in Salt Lake City on June 7-8, and in Alaska on July 1-11, consequently no folders exist for those meetings.
Washington, D.C. March 24-25, 1966
This was the first organizational meeting of the Commission members with the members of the Advisory Council and the Governor's Representatives. Included in the folder are lists of all staff members, official summaries of the meetings, a bound volume containing twenty-seven individual presentations to the Commission which suggest areas for study or define specific problems which should be studied. (A complete list of these statements will be found on the file cards in the archives department.)

There is some travel/tourist information of the White Mountain National Forest included, also.
Denver, Colorado September 16-19, 1966
On September 16th public meetings were held in Denver. The agenda, attendance record, Curtis's pencil notes and typed diary are included in the folder as are the official summaries of each session and several statements.

Series III. Study Plans, Notes, etc.
Each of the studies requested by the PLLRC to enable it to complete its own report was commissioned in the same manner. First a proposed study plan was drawn up and circulated to Advisory Council members for their comments. Many council members sent copies to experts in the field of study and included these comments with their own report to the Commission. A "Request for Proposals" (RFP) was then sent to potential contractors. After a proposal was accepted, a contract signed, and the final report submitted, the council members were asked to read the reports and send comments on them to the Commission. Some of these reports are only a single page, others much longer and very detailed.
Most of the folders in this series contain study plans, requests for proposals and comments from Advisory Council members. These are arranged in RFP number order. There are some folders which contain study plans and comments only. These are in chronological order by study plan date, the folders are lettered A-L rather than numbered. In several instances a study changed title between study plan and comments; these changes are noted in parentheses following the original title. The reports to which the material in these folders refer are in the following series.
