"The Foresters Ready for the Tall Timber," ca. 1912. Forestry professor George W. Peavy (kneeling, left) poses with members of the Forest Club. The club held two meetings a month, one of which was devoted to forestry
				issues and business matters of the club. The other was social, and occasionally took "the form of a night's vigil in the forest, where, seated around the camp fire, stories are told and songs are sung, while the aromatic
				odor of camp coffee is wafted on the air, and 'overland trout' frizzles in the frying pan."
