0v 13 1948 Mrs. Allen Board 9904 Survick Avenue Plymouth, Michigna Dear Bettyi The enclosed wil- 1t least account for oIt of my s;pare time in the last two or three weeks. I ha iust gone throuh your two teaching aids in wildlife manage- ment. Frankly I vasAtt aware of the typographical errors that you epeak of. This may be a oi o the times, or an idication that they are really pretty minor. Of course I try form a montal picture of the kind of wildalife anagement you folks are teachl; at ichigan. but I r lezo that one needs ore than an outline to give such a plcture doeath and colo,. olng over these outlines at night it occurred to me that both campuses prob Q covor much the same field, although apparently in entirely different ways. h tendecy here at Winconsin now is to emphasize poplation mochanisms in teaQhing the biology of gane populations. Leopold and the others thought they could Limage wildlife poplA.tions in the 1930's. but in 15 years. learned that they couldn't. hones th 1 aas been a shift from practical maagement to biology and ecology in their piuro forms. I hops this shift is only temporary. Your literture lists represent in joyas a great deal of work. I have tried to compile such l.ste for our course widif.&1'e ecology, and I can realise how much trouble these lists have given you. If I ever get a chance to compare them against some bibliogsphies around here, 1 will let you know. Leopold kept an accumuLaltive index of the gan literature, but I have never been able to appraise this critically against anothorls bibliograliy. This looks like a good chance. Peggy and I have finally found a place to live here in Madison, At the moment we are living 35 miles outside of town under rather undesirable circumstances. Suzy to very lively, but quite small. I am hoping to visit D)elta for a couple of weeks in June. The loss of Professor Teopold is still such a shook that it will be some time before we realize what a loss he represents. The Governor appointed a drug store proprietor to his slae on the Commission, and I am told that the newspapore set up a wide howl. Give my best regards to Allen and to Warren Chase* Sineerely, JJH :Yp Joseph J. ickey Assistant Professor
