Gifford Pinchot

 

On a recent visit with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, we spent some time meeting in a vacant corner office, unremarkable in every way except for the large aged wooden desk. I figured they were pulling my leg when they explained it was the desk of Gifford Pinchot, the first chief of the U.S. Forest Service. But they weren’t, and that was pretty neat.
