Correspondence and printed matter relating to Richard Hans Douai Boerker's studies at the Universities of Michigan and Nebraska, his work with various government agencies and his books and articles. Many of the letters are acknowledgments of the receipts of his books from prominent foresters, botanists, ecologists and other scientists (1911-1950).
The papers include material on the Yale School of Forestry and other Yale related interests and miscellaneous records relating to Hugh Picken Brady's lumbering activities, including the records of his own and other lumber companies. The papers relating to the Yale School of Forestry include correspondence, memoranda, minutes, reports, printed matter and memorabilia for the period 1954-1967.
The papers consist of letters, photographs, postcards, and clippings, which document Alfred C. Burrill's summer of 1903, when he was a student at Yale's summer school of forestry in Pennsylvania. Burrill's work on a study of poplar trees, which was conducted in Maine later in that summer, is also described in these papers, as are a few student essays from 1900.
Chiefly correspondence between Royal Shaw Kellogg and other foresters and paper company officials and printed relating to forestry. Also included are research files, correspondence and other papers connected with Kellogg's book, Newsprint Paper in North America, published in 1949.
The papers consist entirely of Mason's diaries and travel journals spanning the years 1907-1973. The sixty-eight volumes of diaries deal chiefly with forestry and give considerable attention to the formulation of national policy on forests in the 1930s. The fifteen travel diaries (1950-1972) record Mason's almost annual trips to Europe and the Far East and are also largely devoted to technical subjects.
