Collection: Robert Wolf Oral History Project
Series: Item 2 of Series Bob Wolf-November 15, 1989
Description: Interviewers - Margery Brown and Dan Hall. Wolf examines public land law from several perspectives. The first involved the initially poorly regulated "withdrawal" of the public lands by the military and resulted in the Engalls Act to standardize regulations. The next involved regulating abuses of mining claims. Perhaps the largest impact revolves around the connection between the Public Land Law revision and the Wilderness Act which passed in the same time period. Wolf explains the relationship and how the personalities involved shaped those changes. Finally, he looks at the BLM land management process.
