Abstract

It was about 50 years ago when the effort began in this country to develop systematic protection against forest fires. Before that most citizens looked at the great forest conflagrations as "acts of God" like hurricanes, floods and droughts. After all, such conflagrations had been known to occur since the white man first became acquainted with North America.
