Slattadale Forest Correspondence 1951-1962
The records are courtesy of Inverness, Ross and Skye Forest District Office.
This small collection of correspondence associated mainly with planting at Slattadale Forest is of interest because of the varied issues covered but mainly from the various names of Foresters, District Officers and Conservancy staff involved in the forest from 1951 – 1962. There are gaps in the years but names that come to the fore are:
Foresters – A MacKenzie 1952, Tom Galt 1959, A McInnes?1960, D (Dan?) MacPherson 1960
District Officers – D Graham Campbell 1951, J (I?)Grant 1955, George Taylor 1959, David Paterson 1960.
Conservancy Staff – Robert Innes 1959.
(Any missing first names and details would be very welcome)
