Book Description

Nov. 28 2009

Examining Canada's first Faculty of Forestry at the University of Toronto from its founding in 1907 to it hundredth year anniversary, One Hundred Rings and Counting is a detailed account one of the country's most successful and influential institutions. While its start was marked by opposition from both the university's uncertainty of the field's importance and from the provincial government's concern about how such an institution would affect the government's control over forests, the faculty has produced a disproportionate number of leaders in world of forestry and beyond.

Demonstrating the Faculty of Forestry's longstanding commitment to conservation and environmental stewardship, Mark Kuhlberg depicts its struggles with governments and the public to implement sustainable natural resource practices. Using unexamined archival materials, while contextualising the Faculty within the major educational, social, and political changes of the last hundred years, One Hundred Rings and Counting is a solid institutional history that also traces the development of conservationism in Canada.

Product Description

Review

'One Hundred Rings and Counting is a sterling study of professional forestry education in North America and of educational politics in general (every dean, regardless of school, should read this book). Kuhlberg's tour de force keeps a keen historical eye on the internal life of the Forestry Faculty while at the same time outlining the external forces affecting the program, including national and provincial politics, the relationship between funding and curriculum, and the indelible links between global events such as wars and depression and the human experience in this relatively small corner of the university.' (Char Miller, Environmental Analysis Program, Pomona University)
