This collection consists of sound recordings and transcripts documenting interviews conducted by Max Geier with OSU Forest Research Laboratory faculty and others about the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest. The recordings, made up of 54 microcassette tapes in total, were generated as a part of a historical review of the forest.
The report that resulted from the review, "Necessary Work: Discovering Old Forests, New Outlooks, and Community on the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest: 1948-2000," is available online at the U.S. Forest Service website. Included among the individuals interviewed are: Fred Swanson, Phil Sollins, Jack Lattin, Susan Stafford, Dick Waring, Andrew Moldenke, Gordon Grant, Ted Dyrness, and Cindy Miner. Transcripts of the interviews are available as downloadable PDF and Word files through the Special Collections & Archives reading room user terminal.
