Roscoe A. Poland has been active in wilderness conservation since the mid-1950s. His personal efforts began with writing letters to public officials and grew with the publication of The Conservation Call in the Spring of 1969, which still appears regularly. The collection documents local agriculture, business, construction, economic conditions, the environment, land, parks, recreation, and tourism. It consists of correspondence, publications, maps and other data relating to a series of public hearings held pursuant to the Wilderness Act (PL88-577) of 1964 regarding the disposition of environmentally sensitive localities.
