About Henry Ives Baldwin
Henry Ives Baldwin was born in Saranac Lake, New York in 1896. He served in the US Army Signal Corps in 1918-1919, and as a second lieutenant in the US Army Air Force in 1942-1946. He taught at Saranac Lake High School (1919-1920) and was the assistant to the dean at Yale University (1922), but most of his professional career was in research in forestry and related professions. After graduating from Yale University in 1919, he acquired his Master’s degree from the Yale Forestry School in 1922, studied at the Swedish Forestry School from 1923-1924, and received his PhD in Botany from Yale in 1931. Baldwin began his professional career in 1924 working as a forester for the Brown Company of Berlin, N.H. He later became the state of New Hampshire’s first Research Forester at the Caroline Fox Forest in Hillsborough, a position he held for over thirty years. Baldwin lectured frequently, authored over ten books, published dozens of articles and participated in many groups concerned with forestry and environmental issues, including the Society of American Foresters, the International Union of Forest Research Organizations, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, and the Appalachian Mountain Club. An avid outdoorsman, Baldwin also played a pioneering role in the history of American skiing. This lifelong commitment to scholarly work and forest conservation earned Baldwin numerous awards and a reputation as New Hampshire’s “most respected forester and naturalist.” He died in 1992 at the age of 96.
