The majority of the material in this series pertains to forests in Oregon and Washington, including but not limited to: Winema National Forest, Willamette National Forest, Umpqua National Forest, and Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest. Regions outside of Oregon are also covered including the Siskiyou National Forest in northern California, Bitterroot National Forest in Montana, and Clearwater National Forest in Idaho.  Of note are transcripts of interviews with Geri Vander Veer Bergen, one of the few women in forestry when she started her career in the 1960s. Additionally, there are transcripts of an interview with Wendy Milner Herrett the first woman to be district ranger in the forest service.  The series includes oral histories conducted by the Forest History Society focused on forestry in the west and by the History Section of the USDA Forest Service on timber management in the Pacific Northwest. Also included are interviews of early Oregon Pioneers done during the 1930s as part of the Work Progress Administration.

Series 10 includes 3 sub-series: 1. Putting Conservation to Work, 1989; 2. McKenzie Audiotapes, 1979-1981; and 3. Other Audiotapes, 1980-2012.

Series 12: Publications - Gifford Pinchot, 1859-2010 Add to Shelf

Series 12 consists of extensive reference and research materials on Gifford Pinchot assembled by Williams.  He did not complete a major publication about Pinchot.  Most of the materials in the series are photocopies of Gifford Pinchot’s correspondence, from the Library of Congress’ Gifford Pinchot Papers (indicated as “LoC” in the folder titles below). Most of the correspondence is from 1911-1912, soon after Pinchot was fired as the first Chief of the United States Forest Service, and from 1938-1940 after his retirement as the 28th Governor of Pennsylvania.  The series also includes correspondence to Williams from a Library of Congress archivist with their recommendations for how best to use Pinchot’s material. Material not from the Library of Congress includes news articles about Pinchot, particularly about Pinchot’s dismissal by Taft for speaking about Richard Ballinger, the Secretary of the Interior. There is a folder of editorial cartoons much of which focus on the “Ballinger controversy.” There are transcripts of a radio address by Pinchot, information about the Conservation Commission Pinchot was involved with, and information about Pinchot’s family home, Grey Towers, in Milford, Pennsylvania, which is now a now USDA Forest Service historic site. There is a notebook of photos and ephemera with many images of Pinchot and his historic Grey Towers home, as well as brochures and pamphlets about his life and home.  Of note is a manuscript compiled by Williams from Library of Congress correspondence titled: Letters from Region 6 (Pacific North West) Forest Service Employees to Gifford Pinchot. Compilation represents correspondence of forest service employees in Oregon and Washington from 1898 to 1940.

Born-digital versions of materials in this series are available in the Gerald W. Williams Electronic Records (MSS WilliamsGElectronic).

Series 13 includes Establishing and Defending the Cascade Range Forest Reserve: As Found in the Letters of William G. Steel, John B. Waldo, and Others Supplemented by Newspapers, Magazines, and Official Reports 1885-1912, compiled by Williams and Stephen R. Mark of Crater Lake National Park and issued in 1995 by the U.S.  Forest Service and the U.S. Department of Interior’s Crater Lake National Park.  This compilation consists of typescripts of historical documents assembled from multiple repositories and sources and includes a brief introduction and index; a limited number of copies were produced. The focus of this book is the earliest history of the six national forests on the crest of the Oregon Cascade Range. Its documentation shows the proponents and opponents of national forests, and their efforts to create and keep public forests in Oregon.  Congress and President Benjamin Harrison enacted the Forest Reserve Act in March 1891. Forest reserves in Oregon were established in 1892-1893. For more information about the establishment of the Cascade Forest Reserve, see the Oregon Encyclopedia article written by Williams. The material found in this series used to create this book includes interviews and biographies of pioneers, politicians, environmentalists, and foresters as well as correspondence, reports, journal articles, and newspaper articles on forestry, history and forestry communities.

Series 19: Editorial Cartoons, 1910-2015 Add to Shelf

Series 19 consists of editorial cartoons on forestry and environmentalism dating from 1910 to 2015 that were assembled by Williams to document public perceptions and political responses to natural resource management such as allowing controlled burns while campaigning to prevent forest fires with Smokey the Bear. Notable topics include Gifford Pinchot, the Forest Service use of controlled burns, destruction of forests, and industry interest in gaining control of resources. Williams created a presentation in the early 1990s using editorial cartoons from across the 20th century; overhead slides used in this presentation are included in this series. The majority of the cartoons are printed to size on 8x10 printer paper. Portions of these cartoons were printed directly from Cagle Blog, an internet site featuring political cartoons. Copyright for cartoons published prior to 1923 are in the public domain, while cartoons published after 1923 likely would require permission to use. There are articles about editorial cartoons, including “100+ years of Political Cartoons’ View on National Resources Management 1897-2000” by Gerald Williams.

Born-digital versions of materials in this series are available in the Gerald W. Williams Electronic Records (MSS WilliamsGElectronic).

Series 26: General Reference Materials, 1889-2016 Add to Shelf

Series 26 consists of general reference materials that Williams accumulated through his studies. The material spans across the 20th century and reflects the breadth of Williams’ interests and reach into the larger forestry community. While many of the materials pertain to the Pacific Northwest, the series includes materials on other regions of the United States, of national scope, and pertaining to international forestry. Topics include government and military interactions with the Forest Service, greater outdoor projects within or adjacent to Forest Service projects, wildlife concerns, and many reports and research related to Williams’ interests. This series includes a variety of material types including correspondence, reprinted articles, brochures, pamphlets, ephemera and a plethora of newspaper clippings. A portion of the newspaper clippings are copies of early 20th century newspaper articles.

Of special interest are materials documenting the records of the Forest Service held by the National Archives; forms used to document historical records, sites, and structure; documents pertaining to Forest Service retirees and a 1967 article by Harold T. Pinkett published in the American Archivist.
