DescriptionAlmost immediately after he started in the fall of 1945, Henry H. “Hank” Chamberlin faced many challenges in getting the two-year applied forestry program at Arkansas A&M College (AA&M) up and running. As the newly hired director of the one-man department, Chamberlin needed to build this program with virtually no financial resources, a flawed curriculum, very limited office and instructional space, and no other dedicated faculty. Perhaps it was a good thing that only three students had enrolled in the forestry program during its first term. These challenges, daunting as they were, did not seem to trouble the eager young director—bigger plans were in the works.
