Series 1 and 2 document the establishment of the Department of Fish, Game and Fur Animal Management at Oregon State in 1935-36. The Oregon Wildlife Federation materials include an early constitution and membership list, general bulletins sent to county chapters, reports, resolutions, annual meeting programs, a recording on fishing, and news clippings. Photographs are of William J. Smith and the Oregon Wildlife Federation, logging salvage operations, and the Camp Adair area.
An addition to the Dimick Papers (Accession 2007:033) consists of commencement programs, correspondence, newspaper clippings, photographs, publications, and teaching certificates and contracts. Primarily pertaining to Dimick's work as a wildlife and fisheries professor, these materials document his interest in keeping in contact with alumni of the program, receipt of the OSU Distinguished Service Award, and recognition from others of his 25 years-plus service to the Fisheries and Wildlife Department. In addition to an image of Dimick as a toddler in Hubbard, Oregon, the photographs (38 prints in all) reflect Dimick's work for OSU and includes shots of Dimick attending campus events, early game and fish management classes, reunion gatherings of fisheries and wildlife alumni, and engaged in research at the Yaquina Bay Experiment Research Station.
A second addition to the Papers (Accession 2014:104) consists of a variety of materials generated and collected by Dimick. In addition to correspondence, notes, research data, student papers, and studies, the transfer is made up of reports issued by the Oregon State Game Commission on river basin investigations throughout Oregon that include analyses of the impact of reservoirs and dams upon stream flow and fish populations. Dimick's research, as reflected in the notes, data, and correspondence, focus primarily upon two projects: a survey of cutthroat trout and the effects of a fish diet to the off-coloration in fur animals (mink and fox). The notes include historical references to Pacific Northwest fish populations Dimick compiled from reports, newspapers, and books. Recorded in the research data are numbers relating to the fish stocking "planting" of several Oregon lakes/rivers, comparisons between cutthroat and rainbow trout, chinook salmon runs on the Willamette, and information collected from trout trapped on the Alsea River.
