Biographical / Historical

The work of the sub-committee of the Forest Preservation Advisory Committee was established as a WPA project due to the lack of funds to carry on its work as an independent committee. The project involved the inventory of fire fighting equipment for use by the state and federal forest services in the Minnesota Arrowhead or Northeastern area of Minnesota. The name was altered to Forest Preservation Advisory Council and the sub – committee renamed Executive Committee.
