Download Collection Finding Aid (191 KB)
The collection contains records of the manager of the Timber Unit and is primarily concerned with the activities and administration of that office. The collection had been re-foldered by Library staff at an earlier time; the folder headings used in that project have been retained.
The collection opens with files of correspondence, 1939-1955, much of it to and from Gordon M. Blakely, manager of the unit during most of this time. Office reference files form the next group of records; they primarily concern analyses of wage rates and job tasks.
The collection also includes production records maintained in the manager's office, especially yard inventories, lumber production totals and job costs for various projects.
