But above all, try something." - Franklin D.Roosevelt 32nd President of the United States He was the first person to use sea-going log rafts for quicker and easier transportation of his timbers: doing this when California was in the midst of boom times, Benson had a good business in the logging industry. These log rafts were shaped like cigars, and contained over six million board feet of lumber apiece. In 1905, Benson donated logs from his holdings to be used in the construction of the famous Forestry Building, located in northwest Portland. The Forestry Building was built as a commemoration to the lO0th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. ln l964 a fire destroyed the entire structure. A new Forestry Building was built in the West Hills near the Portland Zoo to replace the original.

Page 4 First To Use Log Rafts ln 1863 Mrs. Benson became ill. Simon Benson sold his land and logging outfit and moved to Colfax, Washington, where the drier climate would help Mrs. Benson's condition. Benson worked at a sawmill, earning seventy-tive dollars a month. Mrs. Benson died several months later, and after paying for an extensive funeral, Simon Benson was once again in debt. Benson had a special talent for saving money, even though he was frequently bankrupt. In one year after his wife's death, he had saved 53,000 and had paid all his bills. It was then that he went into partnership with Orway and Weidler on a 4,000 acre land tract near Cathlamet, Washington. After four years of hard work, Benson was becoming rich and was increasing his business. With a dedication to get as tar ahead as he possibly could, Benson was soon making 52,800 Cl day, and S300,000 a year. is - Q 1,15
