Arrangement and Description

The records which were deposited in 1978 had been reviewed by society member Hank Schlueter who arranged them chronologically; these records retain that arrangement. The subsequent records were in labeled file folders, but were in no apparent order. The processor sorted this material into two series, national office material and Inland Empire Section material. The latter group was then subdivided by subject or record type. Original folder headings were retained when possible.The first series contains minutes of local meetings, copies of reports read at meetings, correspondence, membership lists, and section newsletters.The second series contains the national constitution and bylaws, manuals, minutes and other material concerning annual conventions, especially the 1980 convention held in Spokane and hosted by the Inland Empire Section, minutes from the House of Section Delegates and the Council, as well as information on the Foresters Fund. Also included are printed volumes of forest policies and positions, and a selection of brochures.The records of the Inland Empire Section include the constitution and bylaws, executive council minutes and correspondence, budgets, minutes and other material including photographs, concerning annual meetings, material from the several chapters comprising the IE Section, and issues of Western Forester, which was published by the joint office as a newsletter for the northwest region. There are also reports and policy statements dealing with such subjects as grizzly bear habitat, forest practices in Idaho, and roadless areas.On February 29, 1976, the Spokesman Review published a special supplement on forestry which was taken from articles submitted by the Inland Empire Section. The working copies for articles in this supplement, and correspondence relating to it, are in the final folders of this manuscript group.Since the material in this group was collected from various officers in the section there were many duplicate copies of reports, manuals, and circular letters; these duplicates were discarded. One computer generated list of section members for each year was retained, others were discarded. In all, about 2 c.f. of material was removed.

Scope and Content

The records of the Inland Empire Section of the Society of American Foresters span the years 1938-1984, with the bulk of the material covering the years 1960 to 1982.

The records include minutes of meetings, both local and national, reports on forestry related issues, including RARE II, and newsletters.


Administrative/Biographical History

The Society of American Foresters was founded by Gifford Pinchot and six other pioneer foresters in 1900. It is the official organization representing the profession of forestry in the United States. Through membership in the society foresters unite to increase scientific knowledge of forestry, to shape the policies of forestry, and promote good forest management.

The territory within the jurisdiction of what is now the Inland Empire Section was at one time part of the Northern Rocky Mountain Section. In 1937 the Northern Idaho sub-section was formed under the temporary chairmanship of E.C. Rettig, and a constitution was adopted on April 9, 1938. In 1941 the sub-section was given full stature and became the Inland Empire Section. On May 1, 1981, after a period of reorganization at the national level, the section became known as the Inland Empire Society of American Foresters.
