The Many-Sided Jefferson

This paper attempts to show Thomas Jefferson, not as a forester, nor as a conservationist, nor as a soil expert, nor as a botanist or naturalist. He was something of all of these, and much more. He was certainly a "friend of the land." But he was a great scientist, a many-sided statesman and patriot, a great American whom every American forester would do well to study. He was a great democrat,--and forestry is democratic. The article is occasioned by the 200th anniversary of his birth. The author makes no claim to originality in this portrayal; many of the biographies and other volumes about the Sage of Monticello have been freely drawn on, and quoted.

Document Type: Journal Article

Affiliations: Formerly general inspector, Civilian Conservation Corps, U. S. Forest Service
