About Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests

The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests was formed in Concord, N.H. in February 1901 “…to preserve the forests of New Hampshire, to protect its scenery, to encourage the building of good roads, and to cooperate in other measures of public improvement in the State.” Governor Frank West Rollins was elected its first President and Philip W. Ayres was engaged as forester [a position he continued to hold for the next 34 years].

In 1911, the Weeks Bill, providing for Federal acquisition of forest lands on the headwaters of navigable streams, was passed and signed by the President of the United States. A National Forest Reservation Commission was set up which, upon assurance by the U.S. Geological Survey that control of such lands would aid or protect the navigation of the streams upon whose watersheds they lay, was authorized to approve purchase of those lands. The actual acquisition fell under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Forest Service. In addition, money was appropriated to help states in fire protection – providing there were matching state funds.

Thus the machinery was set up for the formation of the White Mountains National Forests as well as for all the other National Forests established through purchase.

For a history of the first 100 years of the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, consult Rosemary G. Conroy and Richard Ober, eds. People and Place: The First One Hundred Years (2001).

The papers are, for the most part, organized first alphabetically and then chronologically by subject-matter. Series I: Subject Files, especially, follows such organization. Subseries 19: Umbagog is not subdivided by chronology but is instead organized according to its own series and features correspondence, materials relating to legal proceedings, and newspaper clippings. This entire collection is not fully processed. The materials in this guide are the materials housed on-site in Special Collections at UNH Dimond Library; additional materials are housed off-site in the library storage building. Due to an labeling error in processing, there is no Box 28.

    Hello, Frank W Rollins wrote to John Weeks regarding encouraging the Weeks Act, and I wonder if there is any document there? Also, are there images of all of the founders of the SPNHF? Thanks, Liz
