Margy Brown and Dan Hall
Robert Wolf examines public land law from several perspectives. He explains that the history of public land law involved the poorly regulated “withdrawal” of public lands by the military which resulted in the Ingalls (?) Act to standardize regulation. Wolf describes the second phase of public land law which involved regulating abuses of mining claims with perhaps the largest impact revolving around the connection between the Public Land Law revision and the Wilderness Act, which were passed in the same time period. Wolf discusses the relationship between the two and how the personalities involved shaped those changes. Finally, he talks about the Bureau of Land Management’s land management process.
