Scope and Content Note

Like the other series in the Biltmore Estate Forestry Department Manager's Records, Series G documents the formation of scientific forestry across the world. This is one of the larger series in the Collection. It contains letters from Charles W. Garfield, President of the Michigan Forestry Commission. Other important correspondence in the Collection is that between Dr. Schenck and Henry S. Graves, Superintendent of Working Plans and Acting Chief of the U.S.D.A., Division of Forestry and later, Director of Yale Forest School. In addition, Series G contains information from three important traveling forest engineers, Alfred Gaskill, Clarence W. Griffith and Edward M. Griffith. These men corresponded with Dr. Schenck, telling him of their work in forests across the United States. Edward M. Griffith later became Superintendent of Forests, or State Forester, for Wisconsin. All three men were alumni of Biltmore Forest School.

Series G also contains a great deal of Biltmore Estate History. W. A. Gash, who was the primary attorney for George Vanderbilt in Transylvania County, North Carolina, is represented. Series G includes letters from W. A. Gash practicing law both on his own and with his several partners. The correspondence reflects land deals and criminal cases involving wood burning and trespassing.

Collection Organization

Records are filed by correspondent's last name in the case of individual persons. They are filed by company's name for institutions and businesses. It also appears that some clerks preferred to file records by the names of company's managers or agents. Therefore, one organization may be represented in the filing system by several letters depending on the variety of individuals' names within that particular group. In addition, miscellaneous manuscripts are filed in folders carrying a description of the material as a title.

Collection Arrangement

The documents have been arranged alphabetically by correspondents' name, and then, chronologically by date. This organization follows the records' original provenance, in that they were first filed in alphabetical order. It appears the original filing system consisted of placing newer records to the front of older ones, thus keeping working material up-to-date.

Charles W. Garfield, President, Michigan Forestry Commission, 1899 - 1904 (11 sheets)

Correspondence from Charles W. Garfield, President, Michigan Forestry Commission. Grand Rapids, MI. March 27, 1899- Hopes to write legislation to form a Forestry Commission that will be authorized to formulate a Forestry Policy for Michigan.

December 22, 1899- Does not know if their Commission can formulate a plan that will be approved by the Legislature. State needs to go into business using lands unsuitable for agriculture to grow trees. Forest fires and public opinion are also problems.

March 16, 1904- Commission's report asking for forest reserves and appropriations is not being well received.

March 25, 1899- Sorry to hear Pinchot has given him a bad name with Dr. Schenck. Surface maps are the only possible way to classify land.

January 5, 1900- Supports Dr. Schenck's forestry ideals. Is glad to see sentimentalists are being replaced by business men.

February 13, 1900- Agrees with Dr. Schenck's views on the proposed Appalachian Park. The whole southern mountain region is really a national park.

Believes forestry will only pay when fires are kept out and it is practical, not sentimental.

March 9, 1900- Comments on Dr. Schenck's views of high mountain land and its administration. Garrett thinks it should be cared for by individual owners, not states.
