History of the Forest History Society

www.foresthistory.org [cached]

Harold K. "Pete" Steen (1935- ), a historian with a bachelor's degree in forestry and a Ph.D. in history, began working for the Forest History Society in Santa Cruz, California, in 1969.
Originally a publications editor, Steen slowly took over a broader array of duties as the Society's assistant director. In 1978 he became the Society's third executive director. During his tenure as executive director, Steen conducted numerous oral history interviews for the Society, wrote and provided editorial direction for the Society's growing body of publications, and expanded the Society's archival holdings while building important ties with the United States Forest Service, forestry organizations, conservation groups, and corporations. When FHS moved to Durham, North Carolina, in 1984, Steen established an affiliation with Duke University that has proven extremely important to the daily operations of the Society, especially in the computer age. The Society's "Issues Series" publications and If Trees Could Talk middle school environmental education curriculum began under Steen's direction in the 1990s, and the partnership he negotiated with the American Society for Environmental History in 1996 helped widen the scope of the FHS mission beyond the boundaries of forest and conservation history to include subjects related to the broader field of environmental history. Steen's official title changed from "executive director" to "president" a year before he retired in 1997. Steen, Harold K. The Forest History Society and Its History.

Presidents of the Forest History Society

foresthistory.org [cached]

Below are brief biographies of FHS founding president Rodney C. Loehr, his successor Elwood R. Maunder, longtime FHS president Pete Steen, and our current president, Steven Anderson . Please note that until the mid-1990s the professional title of our president was "Executive Director" and the chairman of the FHS board was referred to as "President."
Pete Steen (1935- ) earned a bachelor's degree in forestry from the University of Washington in 1957 and worked several years for the United States Forest Service before obtaining a Ph.D. in history from the University of Washington in 1969. Steen joined the staff of the Forest History Society in 1969 as associate director for research and library services. In 1978 Steen became the Society's third executive director when Woody Maunder resigned. During his tenure as executive director, Steen conducted numerous oral history interviews for the Society, wrote and provided editorial direction for the Society's growing body of publications, and expanded the Society's archival holdings while building important ties with the United States Forest Service, forestry organizations, conservation groups, and corporations. Steen led the Society into the computer age, overseeing the conversion into database format the Society's two primary reference sources--its Bibliography and Guide to Archival Collections. He directed the Society's 1984 move to Durham, North Carolina, and established an affiliation with Duke University, where he served as an adjunct professor until 1999. Before retiring in 1997, Steen negotiated a partnership with the American Society for Environmental History , with whom FHS began co-publishing Environmental History in 1996. The Society's "Issues Series" publications and If Trees Could Talk middle school environmental education curriculum also began under Steen's direction. In retirement Steen continues to do work for hire for the Society while pursuing other projects and teaching at various universities. He is the author of numerous publications, has served on history-related focus groups for the Society of American Foresters and for the International Union of Forest Research Organizations, and is the recipient of several distinguished service awards, including the Society of American Foresters' 2000 Sir William Schlich Memorial Award. In 1997 Anderson succeeded Pete Steen, becoming the fourth president of the Forest History Society.
