This remarkable project includes digital audio recorded interviews with 52 current and former employees of the U.S. Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin. These persons were interviewed as part of an oral history project undertaken by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Oral History Program in cooperation with the Forest Products Laboratory. It's worth noting that the facility was the first of its kind focusing principally on the study and research into the physical properties and resource utilization of wood. The intent of the entire project is "to document the Forest Products Laboratory's history in their work to promote healthy forest and forest-based economies through the efficient, sustainable use of...wood resources in Wisconsin." Visitors can search the collection as they see fit, or just browse through the interviews. Each interview comes with an abstract, information about each segment of the interview, and a brief biographical sketch of the interviewee.
