W.F. McCulloch Collection, 1936-1968

Scope and Content Note

The W.F. McCulloch Collection consists of materials assembled and written by McCulloch and includes certificates and awards; publications written by McCulloch; and memorabilia. Certificates from the Forest History Society and the Oregon State Board of Forestry are included as well as his recognition as a honorary fernhopper by the OSU forestry alumni and his Centennial Award from Oregon State University.

The publications include Forest Practices in Oregon published by the Oregon State Board of Forestry in 1943; The Forester on the Job (1955), a handbook for new forestry graduates as they begin their employment, published by the Oregon State College Cooperative Association; and the Initial Report of Survey of Oregon Forest Conservation Act (1942) prepared by McCulloch as Assistant State Forester.

The memorabilia includes the 1936 edition of The Empire Forester, the annual student publication of the Forestry Club at the New York State College of Forestry at Syracuse University.

An addition to the McCulloch Collection (Accession 2013:069) is made up of a travel log written by McCulloch documenting a week long camping expedition at Murtle Lake in British Columbia with S. S. Harrison. With day by day accounts of the journey starting from the Blue River and proceeding southwest toward Birch Island, the log also contains photographs of the trip and a hand drawn map tracing the route hiked. In addition to views of Murtle Lake, the photographs also depict the campsites, Dawson Falls, Helmcken Falls, and their log raft "Jimmy Biscuits." McCulloch attributes the photography to Harrison.
