President Roosevelt’s contributions to the upbuilding and development of American forestry will probably be accurately measured only in retrospect. After he has been out of office for a number of years, 10 to 20 perhaps, we shall be able to appraise much more fairly and adequately his part in the development of American conservation. In the same way Lincoln was not understood or appreciated, neither during his term of office as President nor in the immediate succeeding years.
