Series: 9/25/10-1: Correspondence

View digitized contents of this series.


Scope and Content Note

These files contain correspondence with individuals. Mr. Leopold apparently began keeping these files when he joined the University of Wisconsin faculty in 1933. General folders (labeled A-Z) contain correspondence on miscellaneous game and conservation matters, 1933-1948. For these folders, only indviduals with whom there is considerable correspondence or whose names appear prominently elsewhere in the Leopold papers have been listed. Individuals who were students of Mr. Leopold are designated with an asterisk.

A few folders in this series were deposited in the UW--Madison Archives by various Leopold students and colleagues. Included in these are some of Mr. Leopold's handwritten letters on yellow-lined paper, copies of which he would not have had in his own files.

It should be noted that this is miscellaneous correspondence. Additional correspondence with many of these individuals, and with many others as well, may be found filed according to content in other folders throughout the Leopold papers.

Papers in these folders are generally arranged in reverse chronological order; this appears to have been the order in which AL filed his correspondence.

Series: 9/25/10-2: Organizations, Committees

View digitized contents of this series.


Scope and Content Note

This series includes correspondence and other documents (c. 1929-48) pertaining to professional societies, committees, conservation organizations, government agencies, research stations, conferences, consultant positions, magazines, and journals. Mr. Leopold was actively involved in some official capacity with virtually all of these; for most, he prepared reports, memoranda, or articles. The papers contain many instances of Mr. Leopold's conservation philosophy in practice.

Equivalent materials from the years prior to 1928 were probably not as voluminous, and some may have been lost. Others may be found, however, with the professional correspondence that Mr. Leopold kept at his home (9/25/10-8 001 001), and also scattered throughout the species and subject files.

Papers are generally arranged in reverse chronological order; but within this general framework it is clear that AL clipped together some batches of correspondence thematically.

Organizations, Committees: Delta [Duck Station -- Manitoba]

View digitized contents of this box.


Note

Box 003 continues Leopold's "organization and committee" files. AL's relationship to Albert Hochbaum's waterfowl research at the Delta Duck Station, Delta, Manitoba, was organizationally complex. Delta was one of the research units financed by the American Wildlife Institute, under supervision of its Technical Committee, chaired by AL (see AWI folders, Box 001). Among other duties, AL apparently handled Delta financial arrangements for the Institute. Hochbaum was AL's student at the time he began his research at Delta in 1938, and later received his master's degree from the University of Wisconsin for a thesis based on early Delta findings. Miles D. Pirnie of Michigan, however, was to supervise Hochbaum's research work at Delta while AL was to serve as a policy adviser.

Along with Pirnie and William Rowan, AL was appointed to a Delta Board of Advisors, created in 1940 by the Cooperators (James Ford Bell and AWI), and it was apparently in this capacity that he undertook to edit Hochbaum's "Bulletin No. l," published as "Canvasback on a Prairie Marsh" in 1944. After 1942, AL apparently had no official connection with the station; correspondence thereafter is with Hochbaum as a professional and friend.

Series: 9/25/10-3: County, State, and Foreign Files

View digitized contents of this series.


Scope and Content Note

Mr. Leopold apparently set up the County, State, and Foreign Files when he began his game surveys for the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI) in 1928. Since the surveys were originally intended to cover the entire country, he began filing clippings on game matters from newspapers, state conservation bulletins, and the DuPont Conservation News ; digests of and extracts from books and articles he had read; maps, data, reports, and other materials, all designated miscellaneous. He also used the miscellaneous files to store extra outline maps, most of which have been removed.

The correspondence in these files is of about equal bulk with the miscellaneous materials for each state, and includes letters to and from cooperators of the survey, officials of SAAMI and its Committee on Restoration and Protection of Game (especially Stewart Commeaux, John M. Olin, Elliott C. Dill, and L. W. T. Waller, Jr.), and other friends. It concerns game matters, potential game surveys, and conservation issues in the various states. The files contain additional correspondence and data for states actually surveyed by Mr. Leopold -- Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. SAAMI game research fellowships are the subject of correspondence with David Gorsuch in Arizona (quail), R. E. Yeatter in Michigan (ring-necked pheasant and Hungarian partridge), and Ralph King in Minnesota (ruffed grouse and cycles). Materials relating to Paul Errington's fellowship at the University of Wisconsin (quail) are not found in this series, but there is some material in the Bobwhite folder (9/25/10-4 002 004).

Some correspondence describes private consulting by Mr. Leopold in the period between the termination of his support by SAAMI in early 1932 and his faculty appointment in August 1933, but after 1933 materials in the state files begin diminishing gradually to about 1940.

The Wisconsin files, arranged by county, contain correspondence and notes, reports, maps, reprints, clippings, and other materials on wildlife history and game management, gathered mostly during the game survey and the early years of Mr. Leopold's faculty position, about 1929-1939. Some folders contain plat books, land economic inventory maps, wildlife management plans by Mr. Leopold and others, student papers on various areas, and consulting reports.

The foreign files contain correspondence and articles from about 1930-1940 on wildlife and conservation philosophy.

Arrangement of folders is alphabetical by county (Wisconsin), state, or country. Material within folders is arranged chronologically. Little or no description of the contents is available for most folders. Empty folders have been noted.

AL apparently set up the species and subject files in the early 1920s in connection with his proposed book, "Southwestern Game Fields" (ms. 1927), later titled "Deer Management in the Southwest" (ms. 1929). See Southwestern book manuscripts in 9/25/10-6, Box 10.

Correspondence in the files indicates that after Mr. Leopold left the Southwest for Madison in 1924, he continued to send clippings, notes, and other items "for the files" to his co-authors in New Mexico, J. Stokely Ligon and R. Fred Pettit. It is not clear whether he ultimately brought those files to Madison (perhaps after his deer-hunting trip to New Mexico in November 1929, by which time work on the joint manuscript seems to have ceased), or whether he retained copies in back-up files of his own. At any rate, materials in the species and subject files in the UW-Madison Archives seem to have been written or collected almost entirely by AL.

The earliest material (to about 1929) relates largely to the "Southwestern" book and to a few of Mr. Leopold's early articles on game management. Some material in these files (1928-1930) pertains to general or summary aspects of the Report on a Game Survey of the North Central States (1931), although most material for individual state surveys is in the state files. A good deal of correspondence and other material, especially 1930-1931, concerns various sections of Leopold's textbook, Game Management (1933). After 1933, content of most of the folders is of a more miscellaneous nature and diminishes in quantity. Exceptions are certain species and subjects, such as upland game birds, whitetail deer, rabbits, cycles, food patches, etc., on which AL's research interests centered during the 1930s. In such folders, there is considerable correspondence with students and colleagues, as well as data and occasional working papers for articles. (See also the research area and project files, 9/25/10-5, and research manuscripts working papers, 9/25/10-6, Boxes 007 and 012.)

The species and subject files originally contained about equal quantities of correspondence and miscellaneous material. At the time the files were deposited by the University of Wisconsin Department of Wildlife Ecology, however, most of the published items (except for occasional duplicates) were removed, along with materials filed after 1948. (A few folders accessioned earlier are included in this series, and may include some published items.) Published materials removed from the files were mostly clippings and articles from state game bulletins and popular outdoor magazines, such as Outdoor Life . Certain folders containing solely published items were not accessioned, and contents of a few folders have been consolidated, but the series is arranged substantially as it was originally.

The correspondence in this series indicates the breadth and character of AL's contacts with sportsmen, wildlife researchers and administrators, government officials, businessmen, and various individuals throughout the country in other professional and private roles. It also indicates the extent to which certain of his research efforts consisted of synthesizing heterogeneous data and observations and experiences of others. In addition to correspondence, the files contain extracts from letters filed elsewhere; AL's notes on his own field observations (including many made while on forest inspection trips in the Southwest) and on observations reported to him by others; extracts from published sources; AL's "digests" of books and articles; a few clippings from mimeographed serials, such as United States Forest Service daily bulletins; occasional cross-references to material in other files; and manuscripts, charts, maps, checklists, and other working papers by AL.

Species folders are arranged by type of species: Big Game (Boxes 001-002), Upland Game Birds (Boxes 002-003), Songbirds (Box 003), Waterfowl (Box 004), Predators and Furbearers (Box 004), and Rodents, Fish, Exotics (Box 005). Subject folders follow in alphabetical order (Boxes 006-008).

Material within each folder is arranged chronologically, although in many cases the "original" AL material (correspondence, notes, manuscripts) is filed first and all miscellaneous (and often undated material) is filed at the end of each folder.

Series: 9/25/10-5: Research Areas and Projects

View digitized contents of this series.


Scope and Content Note

Most of the areas and projects in this series represent ongoing research efforts instituted by Mr. Leopold, usually in cooperation with others, and carried on under his supervision by a succession of graduate students. Mr. Leopold's primary emphasis with his students was on field work and the capacity to carry a research project through to publication, even at the masters level. His main focus during the 1930s was on applied ecology, the development of actual techniques and practices of game management, and demonstration on the land -- hence these research areas, on which he delegated actual land management responsibilities to his more advanced students. The Riley and Faville Grove areas served, in addition, as demonstration areas in farm game management organization.

The bulk of the material pertains to research accomplished before World War II forced curtailment. Included are AL's personal files of correspondence and records on the various areas and projects; area atlases containing reports, data, correspondence, and other records of historical value; such actual student research notes, manuscripts, and correspondence as were retained in Mr. Leopold's files; and banding records coordinated through the chair and later the department.

Major categories include the University of Wisconsin Arboretum (001), Faville Grove (002-004), Prairie du Sac (005), Riley (006), Prairie Chicken Investigations (007-009), and general banding (010). See also files for Delta (9/25/10-2, Box 003) and working papers for AL's own research manuscripts (9/25/10-6, Boxes 007-008, 012-013). Other related materials may be found scattered throughout the species and subject files, the Wisconsin county files, and in a few organization folders, such as Pelee Island and US Soil Erosion Service -- Coon Valley.

View digitized contents of this box.


Note: AL's appointment to the chair of game management created by WARF in 1933 provided for part of his time to be spent as director of all research on the newly established University of Wisconsin Arboretum. In 1940, John Curtis became director of plant research and Leopold became director of animal research. In addition to the Arboretum papers from AL's own files in this box, see the extensive files of the Arboretum itself (Record Group 38, UW-Madison Archives.)

Note: Paul L. Errington began research at Prairie du Sac, including an annual wildlife census and studies of the northern bobwhite quail, in 1929 as a SAAMI fellow at the University of Wisconsin (under AL's general supervision, but for a Ph.D. in 1932 under Professor George Wagner). See the "Bobwhite" folder (9/25/10-4 002 004) for a few letters and items pertaining to Errington's early studies. The wildlife censuses were continued after 1932 by a local woodsman, Albert Gastrow, under the joint supervision of AL and Errington; several graduate students also worked on the area at times. See also materials relating to a proposed joint manuscript by AL and Errington analyzing the results of the censuses (9/25/10-6, Box 013).

Research Areas & Projects: Riley

View digitized contents of this box.


Note

The Riley Game Cooperative was established in 1931, largely through the efforts of AL and R. J. Paulson, a farmer near Riley in western Dane County, and was licensed as a shooting preserve. The group consisted of about 11 farm members who furnished land and grain and 5 town members (of whom AL was "spokesman") who furnished operating funds. Graduate students assigned to the area, 1936-1939, were Ellwood Moore, H. Albert Hochbaum, Lyle Sowls, and Bruce Stollberg.

Some of the items in this box, including the Atlas, were on loan to the Department of Wildlife Ecology as of July 2007. These items were made available for digitization but have yet to be reaccessioned in the UW-Madison Archives.

Research Areas and Projects: Prairie Chicken Investigations, 1930-1935

View digitized contents of this box.


Note

Materials relate to prairie chickens in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Prairie Chicken Investigations were begun by Dr. A.O. Gross for the Wisconsin Conservation Department in 1928. In 1930, F.J.W. Schmidt acted as Dr. Gross's assistant, then took charge and was carried by WCD until May 1933, when he was appointed to a research assistantship supported by the chair of game management at the University of Wisconsin. On 8 Aug. 1935 Schmidt, one of AL's first Ph.D. candidates and an ecologist of outstanding promise, was killed in a fire which also destroyed his notes, photographs, and manuscripts, about 8 of which he was readying for publication.

Box 007 contains what remains of Schmidt's work, consisting mostly of early reports and notes, and early versions of some of the papers, as well as a few manuscripts on miscellaneous topics not directly related to the prairie chicken investigations.

Folders 005 through 011 hold Schmidt's drafts, notes, and correspondence on a variety of topics. Folders 012 through 019 hold Schmidt's correspondence and notes covering selected subjects related to game birds, but no manuscripts.

View digitized contents of this folder.


Note

For approximately one year after Schmidt's death, AL coordinated the prairie chicken investigations (at first called the Lake States Banding Cooperative and later renamed the Prairie Grouse Cooperative). AL's student F.N. Hamerstrom, Jr., eventually took over the prairie chicken work. (More of Fred and Frances Hamerstrom's materials can be found in Box 009.)

During this time period much Wisconsin game bird banding was done through the Central Wisconsin Game Project (Resettlement Administration).

Series: 9/25/10-6: Writings

View digitized contents of this series.


Scope and Content Note

The UW--Madison Archives collection of Mr. Leopold's writings (published and unpublished), related correspondence, and working papers is unusually complete. Materials in this series, most of which were originally in Mr. Leopold's personal files, were deposited by various members of the Leopold family and by the UW Department of Wildlife Ecology.

The first nine boxes of the series pertain to publications, although only Boxes 001-002 contain actual published materials (reprints or clippings). Boxes 003-006 contain correspondence and miscellaneous materials pertaining to publication of Mr. Leopold's four books, copies of which are readily available. Correspondence and working papers for the Report on a Game Survey of the North Central States and Game Management may be found in the species and subject files (9/25/10-4). In Boxes 007-009 are working papers, including correspondence, notes, and drafts, for a number of Mr. Leopold's published articles, reprints of which may be found in Boxes 001-002. Working papers relating to other published items may be found scattered throughout the collection; an attempt has been made in the folder list to identify them where they occur (see also Boxes 016-018 in this series.)

Boxes 010-018 contain mostly unpublished materials, including drafts of Mr. Leopold's proposed book on Southwestern game (Box 010); his state game survey reports (Boxes 010-011); working papers for research manuscripts which were not published (Boxes 012-013); digests, lectures, course materials, notes, and other miscellaneous items (Boxes 013-015); manuscripts, mostly unpublished, which Mr. Leopold kept in his desk (Boxes 016-017); and superseded drafts collected by Dr. Robert McCabe (Box 018).

This series also includes three large folios: one contains a nearly complete set of the Pine Cone , a game bulletin edited by Mr. Leopold and others, 1915-1931; the second contains charts of bird song phenology data for a paper Mr. Leopold intended to write; the third contains original illustrations by artist Byron Jorns, who worked together with Leopold on a series of wildlife management features for the Wisconsin Agriculturalist and Farmer .

Mr. Leopold almost always wrote with pencil on yellow lined paper (PY). After finishing an article or essay he would put it in his "cooling drawer" for several days or weeks, then ask various friends or students for a critical reading, rework it, and have it typed on yellow paper (TY) for further criticism and revision (TYR). A paper might go through several typed yellow drafts before it was finally considered finished and the order given, "Go to white" (TW). Even then it might be further revised (TWR). Exceptions include a few original drafts written in ink on white paper (ink W) and a few final drafts, prior to about 1928, typed on yellow paper.

Southwestern Game Fields

View digitized contents of this folder.


Note: Ring-bound manuscript for "Southwestern Game Fields," deposited by Starker Leopold on 18 Sept. 1967. The manuscript (typed on yellow paper with pencil revisions in AL's hand) is apparently entirely written by AL, although the published version was intended as a collaboration between AL, J. Stokley Ligon, and R. Fred Pettit. This copy is one of perhaps five copies. Pettit and Ligon also had complete copies, while certain chapters were sent to Cooperrider, Talbot, Wales, and Winn.

View digitized contents of this folder.


Note: A loose-leaf folder contains working papers for a book by AL, Ligon, and Pettit, ca. March-June 1929, titled "Deer Management in the Southwest." The "Deer Management" manuscript is apparently a later version of "Southwestern Game Fields," but there was probably an intermediate manuscript or addition to the first manuscript of up to 12 chapters.

Note: Holds unpublished manuscripts related to wildlife censuses in the Prairie du Sac area and a bound volume of Leopold's "digests." From 1941 to 1944 AL and Paul Errington attempted to collaborate on a paper analyzing the results of the Prairie du Sac wildlife census, which dated back to 1929. There were probably four drafts each by AL and Errington, alternating with each other. The final result was a version published by Errington alone in Ecological Monographs (January 1945), "Some contributions of a 15 year local study of the northern bobwhite to a knowledge of population phenomena." Only AL's drafts are in the UW-Madison Archives, along with some related correspondence. See also other Prairie du Sac correspondence and records in 9/25/10-5, Box 005.

Leopold, Lectures in Wildlife Ecology

View digitized contents of this folder.


Note

Also deposited by Hickey is this loose-leaf notebook containing materials from Wildlife Ecology 118. Hickey took this course as a student of AL in 1943 and taught it jointly with AL in 1948. The 1943 materials include handouts and Hickey's notes on lectures. Copies of AL's own lecture notes for 1948 are interfiled; many notes bear his own marks for revision and questions for oral quizzes in class.

See the Hickey papers, 9/25/11, for Hickey's notebooks of lectures in Wildlife Ecology 118 for the years immediately after AL's death, when he revamped the course.

Writings: Unpublished Manuscripts -- AL's Desk File

View digitized contents of this box.


Note

Contains some 200 unpublished manuscripts and fragments found in AL's desk file at the time of his death. Some manuscripts contain ideas which he wanted to set down for possible future use. The manuscripts span years from 1917 to 1948, though several are undated. Portions of the material appeared in revised form in AL's published work, including Round River . Also included are articles, speeches, seminar papers, reports, essays, and fragments on the diverse interests of a lifetime.

After AL's death, these manuscripts were sent to Dr. A. Starker Leopold, who inherited his father's library. On 18 Sept. 1967, Starker Leopold deposited the entire corpus in the UW-Madison Archives. An attempt has been made to arrange the manuscripts according to subject and chronology; a bibliography is included in the box. Titles are self-explanatory (see below).

Items indented were stapled or clipped with the items they follow. The numbers associated with most of th eitems correspond with the numbered items in box 17.
