Managing American Wildlife: A History of the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies

The primary resources for the writing of this book have been the published Proceedings of the Association's annual conventions. The only surviving records of the pre-World War I years, however, are journalists' reports of the conventions that appeared in Forest and Stream and The American Field, two contemporary weekly sportsmen's newspapers. These brief columns were copied in total for their historical interest as a Supplement to the 1980 Proceedings.

They have tended to emphasize the more technical aspects of game management, although regional political concerns have generated considerable attention. Individual state fish and wildlife agencies have also provided materials that shed light on both local and broader problems; some have answered specific questions.

Since November 1973 the IAGFCC Newsletter (after January 1977 the IAFWA Newsletter) has provided timely news to members, especially legislative updates, which have been particularly useful for revealing wildlife managers' priorities and interpretations of current issues. Earlier, some individual Association Presidents issued their own informally produced newsletters, such as the SUMAC-GAF of Harry Woodward and Chester Phelps.

After the International Association established its Washington office in 1972, it began accumulating correspondence and operational files. These have been recently organized, properly stored, and indexed to form a functional archives for researching action on concerns of the past fifteen years. In particular, memo-
