Max Oelschlaeger Professor of Humanities Northern Arizona University

Oelschlaeger's The Idea of Wilderness advances a reading of Thoreau, as a thinker who begins from an Emersonian-transcendentalism, becomes a proto-evolutionary thinker- and then an American scholar posthumously. Ultimately, Oelschlaeger ironically realizes Emerson's dream for his student. Emerson's eulogy reveals his disappointment with Thoreau, asserting, "He had no greater aspiration than to be captain of a huckleberry party."
Max Oelschlaeger is a Professor of Humanities at Northern Arizona University. He is the author of The Idea of Wilderness: From Prehistory to the Age of Ecology (Yale, 1991), Caring for Creation: An Ecumenical Approach to the Environmental Crisis (Yale, 1994), and Texas Land Ethics (Texas, 1997), co-authored with Pete Gunter.

Museum of Northern Arizona: Trustees Minutes 1 NOV 2003

www.musnaz.org [cached]

Active Board Members Present: Susie Garretson, Chair; Ann Poulos, Vice Chair; Linn Montgomery, Treasurer; Robert Breunig, Director; Max Oelschlaeger, Acting Director; Bill Beaver; Jon Bonnell; Susan Golightly; Deb Hill; Louis Jacobs; Carl Phagan; Peter Pilles; Wayne Ranney; Katrina Rogers; Joan Scott; Carolyn Shoemaker; and Larry Stevens

Max Oelschlaeger expressed relief and thanks that Robert Breunig was on board as director, after having spent much time at MNA while tasks from his "real job" at NAU piled up.
Max explained the progress made by the staff serving on a heritage program committee . The committee was established primarily to consider the 2004 venue and dates of marketplaces so that the marketing staff could begin announcing the programs.
Max will continue to work about 20 hours per week until Robert is on board full time.
Max suggested that the museum members be given an open disclosure of the audit, so that they understand the issues at hand as well as understand the investments and endowments.
Max reminded attendees that the museum needs to raise $20 million, and that it is important for the board to work in tandem.
Max would like to see this endowment addressed by the Anthropology Committee in the near future.
Although Max had serious reservations about the viability of the publications, Robert felt that to cease printing them would send the wrong message to the public and membership.
