Subgroup 3. Local Development Issues. 1863-1939.

As an attorney who specialized in land acquisition and disposition, Wilson became involved in many local development issues. Wilson's interest in water usage began when he served as the city's attorney in the dispute between the Corvallis Water Company vs. the City of Corvallis from 1897-1901. Additionally, documents from 1913-1920 indicate he was actively involved in protecting the Mary's Peak watershed, the drainage that supplied the city's water. Wilson served on the Corvallis Water Commission from 1932-1940 and encountered a water shortage in 1938 which led to expansion of the city's reservoirs. The transportation series consists primarily of legal records documenting Wilson's representation of clients in actions involving railroads and other transportation companies.

Subgroup 4. Oregon State Game Commission. 1892-1959.

E.E. Wilson served on the Oregon State Game Commission from 1935-1949, and was chair of the Commission from 1939 until his separation from the Commission in 1949. The Game Commission was charged with preserving wildlife in the state for hunters and fishers (the Oregon State Fish Commission protected and propagated fish for commercial purposes during these years). It operated fish hatcheries for the artificial propagation of trout and salmon, and game farms for the propagation of game birds. In addition, the group made policy regarding big, medium and small game animals.

His papers provide primary source documents from a variety of perspectives. The Commission's efforts are reflected in the radio broadcasts presented from 1941-1943, in Wilson's speeches and correspondence, and may also be found in Game Commission reports and in the minutes of monthly meetings. He personally researched topics relative to Game Commission issues and left an extensive group of reference material on wildlife practices from the late 19th century through the 1940s. Papers from his service on the Game Commission consist of 10 series:


Series I. Administration. 1929-1961.

This series includes Game Commission biennial reports, minutes from monthly meetings, historical information, and the reports of the Legislative Interim Committee, the group that investigated the ability of the Game Commission to deal with the state's game problems in 1948.

Series II. Fisheries. 1929-1949.

As increasing numbers of people emigrated to the state and fisheries declined, the propagation of trout and salmon became major projects for the Commission. This series includes files on the Commission's attempts to secure Eel Lake as a brood lake for coastal streams, the lake and stream survey detailing Oregon's inland water resources, records on the Rogue River Coordination Board and the effects of placer mining on fisheries, and reports on the Willamette Valley Project which promoted high dams and increased numbers of fish hatcheries on the tributaries of the Willamette River.

Series III. Game Birds. 1936-1954.

Loss of habitat, pollution and other human perturbations challenged Oregon's bird populations as well as fish populations. The Game Commission ran farms to support artificial and natural propagation programs to supply game birds for hunters. This series documents the establishment of a game farm on Camp Adair, a former World War II training camp (which has been dedicated to and named after Wilson), documentation of the Sauvies Island project, history of the introduction of the Ring-Necked China Pheasant, and two book manuscripts by 'Gene Simpson, the Game Commission's first Superintendent of Game Farms.

Documents from this series illustrate the conflicts between deer and elk hunters contrasted with the interests of ranchers who herd cattle and sheep in Eastern Oregon. The Game Commission became involved in the long standing conflict during World War II by attempting to mitigate issues of grazing interests, forest service practices and hunting regulations.

Series V. Radio Broadcasts. 1940-1944.

Starting in 1941 the Game Commission produced 15 minute radio spots broadcast bi-monthly over KOAC, the local public broadcasting radio station. These spots utilized members of the Game Commission and the staff as spokespeople who highlighted projects and issues the Commission addressed. The spots continued until 1944 when the Commission suspended the broadcasts due to a lack of materials and personnel that had been devoted to the war effort.
