Char Miller’s
Centennial Road Tour
he Forest Service will celebrate its centennial in 2005 and launch its
New Century of Service to the American people and the extraordinary
Dr. Char Miller
landscape under its management. But what of its past century of service?
What is the relationship between the Forest Service’s land management practices then and now?
And how might a discussion of its historical challenges help us better understand its contemporary
dilemmas and future prospects?
Dr. Char Miller—author, professor, and Forest Service history expert—will deliver 30
lectures throughout the country about the environmental and political history that developed and
shaped the Forest Service. The talks illustrate the agency’s past and speak directly to the present.
Using photographs, cartoons, and other illustrative material, he weaves an exciting tale about the
Forest Service’s contributions to the Nation and the controversies that swirl around its actions.
