Scope and content

Item is a photograph of a copy print, resulting in a low quality photographic reproduction. Reproduced as a print, slide, and a negative. Location of original photograph is unknown.

Bob St. Claire was an American forester who came to BC with an MF degree and some experience in the US Forest Service. He was familiar with the US Forest Experimental Stations. In 1923, as Assistant Chief Forester, he wrote a report recommending: 1) a research station centred in Victoria, and 2) an experiment station in each major forest region in the province. His recommendations were followed. In 1924, Aleza Lake Experimental Station was established and in 1929 Cowichan Lake Experimental Station was established. Bob St. Claire was Assistant Chief Forester three times, but never became Chief Forester.
