Onthank graduated from the University of Oregon in 1913 and married Ruth McLaren in 1915. In 1916 he joined the University of Oregon staff as executive secretary to President Prince Lucian Campbell. From 1924 to 1926 he was one of three members of an administrative team which took over during President Campbell's illness and the search for his successor. In 1930 Onthank was named dean of personnel administration for the university. In l948 he became associate dean of students in charge of job placement, a position he held until his retirement in l957. Onthank died in 1968.

In 1954 Karl and Ruth Onthank, together with other outdoor and conservation activists, formed the Friends of the Three Sisters Wilderness (F3S), dedicated to preserving the Three Sisters Primitive area of the Willamette and Deschutes national forests. He served as president of the Federation of Western Outdoor Clubs from 1955 to 1957. Onthank helped organize the Save the McKenzie River Association and served as its vice-president. Some of the other groups to which Onthank belonged are: the Columbia Basin Inter-Agency Committee, Eugene Park and Recreation Commission, Izaak Walton League of America, Lane County Park and Recreation Commission, Obsidians, Oregon Outdoor Recreation Advisory, Oregon Roadside Council, Oregon State Water Resources Board, Sierra Club, Trustees for Conservation, and Waldo Lake Advisory Council.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Karl Onthank collection consists of files assembled by Karl Onthank during his years of active conservation work. It includes correspondence, organizational documents, reports, newsletters, projects, plans, and other material generated by and concerning conservation organizations in which Onthank was a member or for which he acted in an advisory capacity. Collection is organized into four series: the projects in which Onthank engaged directly, the major and minor associations and committees which drew upon Onthank’s expertise, and the general correspondence files.

The Projects series includes papers relating to the proposed Beaver Marsh hydroelectric project, the Oregon Dunes National Seashore proposal, the Three Sisters Wilderness Area, and Waldo Lake.

The Major Associations and Committees series includes documents relating to the Columbia Basin Inter-Agency Committee, the Federation of Western Outdoor Clubs, the Izaak Walton League of America, the Lane County Parks and Recreation Commission, the Nature Conservancy, the Oregon County Parks Association, the Oregon State Water Resources Board, and the Sierra Club.

The Minor Associations and Committees series includes smaller collections of documents relating to over 200 other outdoor and wildlife associations.

The Correspondence series records in depth the plans, opinions, and projects in which Onthank participated, and the letters received reflect the thoughts of the writers or their associations. Incoming letters are arranged throughout the collection alphabetically by sender; outgoing letters are arranged chronologically. This arrangement provides a useful index to the various conservationists as well as a chronological record of the Onthank’s work. The collection includes approximately 3,300 incoming and 3,700 outgoing letters.
