Bernhard Eduard Fernow: A Story of American Forestry by Andrew Denny Rodgers

In this comprehensive biography of the life and career of Bernhard Eduard Fernow (1851-1923), the first professional forester in North America and an organizer of the forestry movement, Andrew Denny Rodgers reveals the history of forestry in North America. Originally published in 1951, this book is being bought back into print after twenty-five years in honor of the centennial of the National Forest system.
Drawing on unpublished papers and voluminous records in contemporary forestry journals, Rodgers traces Fernow's life as an organizer of the forestry movement; as a practicing forester in Slatedale, Pennsylvania; as primary architect of the U.S. Forest Service; as founding dean of the first professional forestry school in America at Cornell University; as editor of Forestry Quarterly; as dean of the faculty of forestry at the University of Toronto, the first in Canada; and as president of the Society of American Foresters and the Canadian Society of Forest Engineers.
