Conservation Movement during the Progressive Era
Neglected during most of the nation’s history, the conservation of natural resources became a significant issue during the Progressive era. Dedicated environmentalists like John Muir alerted Americans to the need to preserve areas of wilderness; others, like Gifford Pinchot, argued for the rational use of resources. President Theodore Roosevelt made conservation an important part of his administration’s agenda. Bitter controversies, like the Ballinger-Pinchot affair during the Taft administration and the battle to dam California’s Hetch Hetchy Valley for a reservoir, sometimes surrounded conservation efforts.
Suggestions for Term Papers
1. Why did conservation become a popular issue?
2. Compare John Muir’s and Gifford Pinchot’s views on conservation.
3. Would the conservation movement have succeeded without Roosevelt’s efforts?
4. How endangered were America’s natural resources in 1900?
5. Analyze the Ballinger-Pinchot controversy.
