DescriptionOne of the first range research programs on National Forest lands was conducted by Dr. Arthur W. Sampson in the Wallowa Mountains, Oregon, between 1907 and 1911. This paper reviews the historical perspective of and the basic range management principles and practices developed from Sampson's studies as well as the land and grazing management of the study area to 1980. Plant succession and range improvement from the depleted conditions prevalent in 1907 are discussed and documented by photographs between 1955 and 1976.
