Siletz River, 1939:
Farms, Clearcuts, Old-Growth, and Indian Prairies

Bob Zybach and Erik Badzinski*


This report has been prepared for Internet users interested in the forest and river history of the Pacific Northwest, Douglas-fir Region, Oregon Coast Range, Lincoln County, or Siletz River.

The focus of this report is a series of aerial photographs of the Siletz River basin taken in July, 1939 as part of the USGS "Newport Project." Original photo prints have been digitally scanned, arranged by sub-basin, codified, titled, and connected by hyperlinks to a table of contents and to Siletz sub-basin web pages.

The original photographs, including annotations, are the property of Georgia-Pacific, Inc., Toledo, Oregon Division. Funding for this project was provided by the Clemens Foundation of Philomath, Oregon, the Paul Bunyan Foundation of Associated Oregon Loggers, Inc., Venell Farms, Inc., of Corvallis, Oregon, and Margaret M. Hull, of Bellfountain, Oregon.

* Erik Badzinski was an Eddyville High School senior at the time he coauthored this online report.
