Abstract:On August 27, 1937, Lloyd G. Hornby died of heart failure on the Toboggan Creek forest fire in the Clearwater National Forest. Few if any men in or out of the U. S. Forest Service have made a greater contribution to fire control planning than did he. In the following article, H. T. Gisborne outlines the principles of fire control planning developed by Mr. Hornby, emphasizing the major features which have too often been obscured by the detailed technical procedures of the component processes of fuel type classification, seen area mapping, smokechaser coverage, transportation planning, etc.
