Origin of the Congress

HE First National Conservation Congress was the

logical outcome of the White House Conference

of Governors which was held in Washington, D. C., May 13-15, 1908, on the invitation of Theodore Roosevelt, then President of the United States, but the definite idea of convening the Congress originated with citizens of the State of Washington, who made the Congress a reality.

In November, 1908, the Washington Forestry Association held a convention in which the people of the whole State participated. The delegates to this convention recommended that a conservation congress of national scope should be held in Seattle during the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition.

In January, 1909, the members of the Washington Forestry Association organized the Washington Conservation Association, with a charter membership composed of the members of the Forestry Association. A Committee of the Conservation Association was appointed to make arrangements with the Exposition management. As a result, suitable halls were secured for the sessions of the Congress and tickets of admission to the Exposition were obtained for the delegates.

The work of arranging all the details of the Congress was planned and supervised by Mr. R. W. Douglas, Executive Secretary of the Washington Conservation Association.
