MSS 1, Research files for Lewis & Clark expedition, Lolo Trail, Correspondence

In this 1940 letter to Barry, Roy A. Phillips, supervisor of the Nez Perce National Forest in North Idaho, discussed his work plotting the course of the Lewis and Clark expedition on its return trip eastward through Idaho in June 1806.  Phillips explains that he spent much time early in his career in the Forest Service "surveying, mapping, and cruising timber," and had definite ideas on how Lewis and Clark did their survey work.
