Abstract

THE head of an outstanding engineering school remarked-" How does it come that you have an accredited school of forestry in a prairie state like Iowa, a state which has such limited timber lands?" This query came from the Dean of an engineering school. It has been a perennial question. A partial answer predates, by many years, the initiation of technical forestry training at Iowa State College. It reflects the thought of a number of persons, who saw the place which forestry would ultimately occupy in the economy of the State and Nation. The beginning of technical training in forestry at Iowa State College was the result of many influences and the impact of numerous personalities which eventually crystallized into a program of training . professional foresters.
