The "1910 Fires: A Century Later" conference is scheduled for May 20-22 in Wallace, Idaho.

A pivotal event in American forestry and the Forest Service, the 1910 fires burned over 3.1 million acres of forests burned in northern Idaho and western Montana. This conference will examine the social and institutional conditions prior to the fire, the fires, the impacts the fires had, and discuss the possibility of such fires burning again.
While this conference is the 2010 Inland Empire Society of American Foresters annual meeting, all those interested, including general public, are invited.
Policy makers of the highest levels have been invited and the following speakers are confirmed: Leslie A.C. Weldon, Regional Forester, Ranotta McNair, Forest Supervisor, Idaho Panhandle FS, Stan Cohen, Historian, Mark Finney, Fire Scientist, Bob Mutch, retired Fire Scientist, Carl Gidlund, retired FS/Spokesman Review, Ann Camp, Yale University, Dale Bosworth, retired FS Chief, Tom Tidwell, FS Chief, Joel Holtrop, Deputy Chief, Tom Harbour, Director, Fire and Aviation Management, Dave Cleaves, FS Research, and Jerry Williams, retired FS Director, Fire and Aviation Management. Field tours, exhibits, posters, and a dinner featuring Dick Rothermel, who authored, Mann Gulch Fire: A Race That Couldn’t Be Won and Bob Sallee, sole living survivor of the Mann Gulch Fire in 1949 will be part of the program.
Sponsors include: Inland Empire Society of American Foresters; the Rocky Mountain Research Station, Northern Region, Fire and Aviation Management, National Forest Systems, and Research and Development of the Forest Service (FS); and the Forest History Society.
