Stewart Holbrook was a logger, a nationally recognized author, and self-taught historian whose topics included Ethan Allen, railroads, and the timber industry. Holbrook, believed to have coined the term "tree farm," was renowned for writing about the forest and those who worked in it. A man of humble beginnings, he is remembered as an "ex-lumberjack who had lectured on American History at Harvard University." In 1965, International Paper Co. dedicated 33,000 acres of forest as a memorial to him. Holbrook's mission of conservation, hunting, fishing, hiking, and enjoyment of the spiritual values of the forest continues under the management of the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge, U.S. Department of the Interior.
