Even though our profession in America is comparatively youthful, as professions go, nevertheless it has already attained that age where its early pioneers are successively passing off the stage with increasing frequency. Most of them throughout their actively productive careers have been so busy doing things that they have not taken the time to leave behind them a detailed record of what they did and how they went about doing it. Such a historical record is of inestimable value to those of us coming after, as a background from which to plan and carry on into the future. We are indebted therefore to Herbert Smith for the time and effort he has put into this conscientiously accurate account of the early beginnings of forest education.
