A memorial was erected to Daddy " Filbert Roth by friends and former students in 1927 . . . " - ' I he School of Forestry and Conservation at the University was one of the pioneers in blazing the trail toward formal instruction in forestry. Its first classes were taught in the Department of Political Science in 1 881 . It later was incorporated as a depar tment in the Literary College until 1927 when it became a separate unit. It was largely due to the untiring efforts of Filbert Roth, better known to his students as Daddy " Roth, that the School of Forestry was founded. A short time after his death, friends and former students, prompted by their great love for him, erected a memorial in Saginaw forest to " Daddy " Filbert Roth. After its beginning the School of Forestry developed rapidly until today it is one of the leading schools of its kind in the country. And it seems rather fitting that the growth of Filbert Roth ' s dream and first love, the School of Forestry, should be paralled by the growth of the trees planted around his memorial. These trees can be seen in the picture below just after they had been planted and above as they stand today. The Natural Science Building provides excellent facilities for instruction and research. Practical experience is easily gained in the numerous forests and woods situated in and about Ann Arbor. The School also maintains a summer camp at Golden Lake in the Ottawa National Forest in the Upper Peninsula which provides a basic part of the curriculum. The technical side, however, is not unduly emphasized. The following is one of the primary aims of the school: " Con- servation as a philosophy is emphasized not only in relation to forest and other natural resources, but in relation to human resources and to commerce and industry in general, as the only sound basis of permanent national prosperity " . . . . and still today members of the Forestry School pay tribute to this great man. 115
