K. Weyerhaeuser's Enduring Influence on the Study of Forest History
F. K. Weyerhaeuser's daughter Lynn
Weyerhaeuser Day continued her father's legacy of service to the Forest
History Society, volunteering her time and advice as an FHS Board member or
advisor for almost three decades. In 1986 Lynn and her husband Stanley R.
Day of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, established the FHS Frederick
K. Weyerhaeuser Forest History Fellowship in honor of F. K. Weyerhaeuser
to support FHS programs and to strengthen the Society's affiliation with Duke
University. The annual award is restricted to Duke graduate students whose
research involves forest or conservation history and consists of an $11,000
The Forest History Society owes
a significant debt of gratitude to F. K. Weyerhaeuser and other members of
his family, especially Lynn Day and Carl
A. Weyerhaeuser, who have donated much time and unbiased financial support
to furthering scholarly investigation into the history of people's relationships
with forests and related natural resources.
