Description

A. A. Brown credits Harry Gisborne for being a pioneer of fire research. Brown notes that Gisborne’s enthusiasm helped convince the U.S. Forest Service administration and fire fighters of the importance of fire research and its role in fire prevention and control. Brown criticizes Gisborne for his rather narrow studies on northern white pine forests and his belief that the work done at Priest River Experimental Forest was better than anywhere else.
