The Crossett Story, Revised: Updating a Forestry Classic
Abstract: The Crossett Story slide show was developed in 1980 to detail the history of logging, field forestry, and research centered on the USDA Forest Service's Crossett Experimental Forest (CEF). However, science and technology have advanced considerably over the last several decades and the regulatory environment has changed, making an update of the Crossett Story inevitable. The original slide show involved a montage of historical photographs, recent images, and commentary from Russ Reynolds. Using desktop computers, scanners, audio and video editing software, and an expanded selection of photographs and research, we updated the Crossett Story to a series of digital formats, providing CD-, DVD-, and internet-based delivery mechanisms with captioning capabilities.
