Alan McQuillan and Dan Hall
Alan McQuillan tells the history of the Quinalt Indian Reservation in Washington state. He describes the Quinalt tribe’s complaints regarding the mismanagement of timber sales and logging contracts by the Bureau of Indian Affairs [BIA]. McQuillan notes that these complaints resulted in the 1957 congressional hearings. Robert Wolf continues the interview to provide additional background on the Quinalt tribe. He goes on to discuss the hearings, his role as forest consultant, the incompetence of the BIA, the impact on Quinalt lands, and the BIA’s defense of its actions.
The audio for this interview is available at Archives and Special Collections, but has not yet been digitized.
