Education in Forestry: Proceedings of the Second National Conference, New Haven, Connecticut, December 17-18, 1920. Bulletin, 1921, No. 44
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The Second National Conference on Education in February was held under the auspices of the School of Forestry of Yale University at New Haven, Connecticut on December 17 and 18, 1920. Its purpose was to discuss the question: To what extent and in what ways is it desirable to revise the standardized curriculum of instruction in forestry that for the past 10 years has been more or less closely followed by the leading forest, schools of the United States? That curriculum was the outcome of the First National Conference on Education in Forestry, held in December, 1909, when was appointed a committee on standardization of instruction in forestry that published its final report in the Forestry Quarterly for September, 1912 (Vol. X, No. 3). The second conference on professional forestry education was called by Dean Toumey of the Yale School of Forestry, after consultation with other foresters engaged in educational work. Those in attendance represented, personally or by proxy, all the forest schools in the country that offer courses leading to a forestry degree, or that otherwise train men for the practice of forestry as a profession. Through the courtesy of the United States Commissioner of Education the proceedings of the conference are made of permanent record in this bulletin, the conference having very gladly accepted the commissioner's offer to incorporate this material in a publication of the Bureau of Education. Appended are: (1) List of committees of second national conference on education in forestry; and (2) Forest schools having 4-year curricula. An index is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 6 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
