Primarily made up of agendas, abstracts, participant/speaker lists, and brochures given to those enrolled in the workshops/tours, this transfer also contains reports and proceedings generated as a part of these workshops and symposia. Among the subjects addressed in these materials include forest land management, harvesting practices, sustainability and ecosystem issues, fire containment, forest research methods, marketing strategies and planning, stream habitat improvement, management of Native American forest lands, and protection of wildlife in forest environments. Some of the events coordinated by the OEO are also co-sponsored by the Society of American Foresters which offers credits toward workshop enrollment as evidence of continued professional development.

In addition to the will and other legal documents setting up the fund, this transfer includes correspondence, newsletters, newspaper clippings, notes, and photographic images.
