Biographical NoteReturn to Top

William Robert (Bud) Moore was born on October 1, 1917 in Florence, Montana. The oldest of William and Hazel Moore’s nine children, Bud Moore graduated with an eighth grade diploma from Woodman Elementary School and went to work running a long-line trap line along the Lochsa River and the Lolo Trail in the Bitterroot Mountains of western Montana and northeastern Idaho. While he maintained the trap line in the winter, he began working on fire crews in the summer for the United States Forest Service at the age of 16, in 1934, and picked up other seasonal jobs with the department including alternate ranger, fire dispatcher, lookout, and trail crew foreman until the United States entered World War II. Moore married Mary Jane Buckhouse in Missoula, Montana on November 27, 1941.

Initially labeled 4-F by the military because of a hand injury, Moore joined the effort to cultivate guayule for rubber production. He moved to California and worked on the guayule farms until his hand healed and he was able to enlist in the Marines in May of 1943. During his three years in the Marine Corps, Moore served mostly in the Pacific including campaigns in Peleliu, New Britain, and Okinawa. While Moore was overseas, his and Jane’s son, William Henry (Bill), was born on October 22, 1943. Bud Moore was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in February of 1946 and remained a part of the Marine Corps Reserves until 1952.

Moore returned to Montana and the Forest Service and eventually became a ranger in the Powell District. The Powell District served the Lochsa area and was part of what he considered his “home range.” In 1950, he was promoted to District Ranger of the Powell District. Bud and Jane’s daughter, Victoria (Vicki), was born in Missoula, Montana on May 18, 1953. Moore continued to be promoted to positions of higher responsibility including Deputy Supervisor of the Lolo National Forest and Training and Safety Officer in Ogden, Utah. In 1961, he was promoted to chief of the Branch of Employee Development and Training and transferred to Washington, D.C. He moved his family to Virginia and acquired property in West Virginia (Sandy Ridge Woods) where he began instituting his ideas on land use and ecosystem management. In 1964, he was assigned to direct the National Fire Coordination Study and, at the conclusion of the study in 1966, was named the Deputy Director of the Division of Fire Control. In 1969, he was reassigned to Missoula, Montana as the Division Chief of Fire Control and Air Operations for the Forest Service Northern Region, the position from which he retired in 1974.

Bud and Jane divorced and Bud married Janet Fitzgerald on May 17, 1971. Janet had four children from a previous marriage, Joe, Nancy, Kevin, and Susan. The same year he retired from the Forest Service, 1974, the University of Montana in Missoula awarded him an honorary Doctor of Science degree. He and Janet also purchased property in Swan Valley, Montana (Coyote Forest) that Moore would use to further institute his conservation and ecosystem management ideas and also establish a small milling business. He maintained his interest in the wilderness around his new home, trapping and hiking along the Lochsa and Clark Fork Rivers. Bud and Janet purchased another tract of land (Mattson Meadows) in Powell County, Montana, in 1976. In 2008, Moore would use this land as part of an exchange to acquire 210 acres (McFarland Creek) in Mineral County, Montana with hopes of rehabilitating it to a more natural state.

Moore wrote freelance articles on wilderness, recreation, trapping, and hunting topics starting in the 1960s and was published in magazines such as the Ford Times and Deer Sportsman. In 1974, he began gathering information to write a book on his experiences and ideas concerning wilderness and the Lochsa country of western Montana and the Idaho panhandle. Initially titled Rediscovery of Earth, his book would eventually be published as The Lochsa Story: Land Ethics in the Bitterroot Mountains by Mountain Press Publishing in 1996. Moore continued with his conservation advocacy work and writing following his retirement and also booked speaking engagements on conservation, fire control, trapping, hunting, and local history topics. He supported historical and conservation groups including the Upper Swan Valley Historical Group, the Travelers Rest Preservation and Heritage Association, the Swan Ecosystem Center, and the Montana Wilderness Association. His outreach work and affinity for storytelling put him in contact with many important writing and conservation figures in Montana including Norman Maclean, Arnold Bolle, Stewart Brandborg, and Doris Milner. He kept his property and home at Coyote Forest open to visitors and used it as a tool to teach people about responsible forest management and wilderness conservation.

Janet Moore passed away on April 7, 2001. Bud Moore was diagnosed with a sarcoma malignancy in February 2010; he passed away on November 26, 2010.

Sub-subseries 2: Coyote Forest Photo Archive
12.32 gigabytes of digital materials
This sub-subseries consists of photographs and slides that are a part of the Coyote Forest Photo Archive, a photo database created by the family, its electronic files are labeled "Library," most of the scanned images are cataloged in the boxes labeled "Digital Photographs, Source Materials." Photo numbers 2030 through 2263 and 2289 through 2300 are not in these boxes. Photos 2030 through 2263 are retained in their original locations in "The Lochsa Story, Selected Photos" folders and then organized by book chapter. Photos 2289 through 2300 do not exist either through a numbering error or were not digitized with the rest of the collection. All photos can be tracked to the digital copy (along with the additional information) by their photo number. Some of the photos have an associated audio file of Bud Moore talking about the photo or a memory associated with the photo. These audio files are labeled with the same number as the photo. A single box of assorted DVDs and CDs contains files that may duplicate materials already available in the electronic files and photo database.The digital versions are available for access through the Montana Memory Project. http://mtmemory.org/cdm/landingpage/collection/p16013coll58 [Processor's Note: Includes scanned photos, descriptions, and audio recordings available in the collection.

Here is a classic photo of what some observers call nature's watershed tree, the alpine fir, or Abies laceocarpa, taken on Beaver Ridge in Feb. 1953. The limbs all bend down tight against the tree, so the snow all avalanches right to the ground so there is less evaporation off the tree. They provide pretty good shade too. Note about these 1953 slides. "A lot happened in '53. We were out cruising those bark beetles. Working with ACM (now Plum Creek) working side by side." Also, early explorer, John Lieberg, is the one who first called this tree "nature's watershed tree." He made the first reports of this country with the USGS, which was charged with surveyor work, in the late 1800s. Idaho.

Bud can't be sure where this slide was taken, but it is possibly one of the cruising camps where Forest Service crews were cruising for the spruce bark beetle infestation in the winter. One of these that might be connected, but can't be sure, is up on Round Top Lookout up on Beaver Ridge where Forest Service dropped a camp, and dropped some lumber, on top of about ten feet of snow. Bud said, "We pitched a 14 x 16 tent on top of that, which became our bunkhouse for the project while we were up there. We were up there about ten days with a pretty good sized cruising crew. Looking at this photo, it looks like there is a wood floor under this tent. That would be the raft if that is the spot." Andy Arvish is holding the bowl, sitting on the bunk. Idaho.

This cliff was just downstream from Badger Creek, where the creek enters the river. There's a big hole, what Bud called the Big Fish Hole, in this vicinity. A lot of this rubble was blown out into that fish hole. It didn't dam up the river, however. This was not the main highway, because it was being built wider than this.

This cabin is non-existent today, but its location was slightly upstream from where the West Fork of Squaw Creek comes into the main Squaw Creek drainage. It's a narrow tight canyon, and this is all partly under the road or something. You can't find the cabin remains today.

"I thought Frank could do anything, and I was pretty much right. The only thing he wasn't good at was marriage, family. He never married." (Bud) Frank told Bud, "When I was young, and strong and handsome, I couldn't see any of the girls to get tied up with, and now that I'm old, they don't want to get tied up with me." He was a good trapper, and worked lumber camps. Idaho.

Their achilles heel was they'd throw a track once in awhile and we'd have to dig in under it and get the track back on the cogs. That would take maybe an hour or two to get it going again. The mechanic and driver would crawl under the weasel and the rest of us would build a big bonfire until we got it going again." Idaho.

The cabin that Bud built for his sister, Silvia "Siv" and her husband, Al DeMott, when they were newlyweds at the Moore family homestead. Recording has interesting brief story about differences in log construction, notches, comparing typical Bitterroot Valley cabins to those, say, in the Swan Valley where Scandinavians did much of the construction. Montana. There is a sound recording associated with this photograph.

1523: Retardant drop west of Missoula
Retardant plane flying west of Missoula. Bud was in Missoula at this time, and worked on this fire. The recording also addresses the Pattee Canyon fire in later years, and the importance of using retardant planes for initial attack. (The DC-7 discussion refers to Evergreen Air in Missoula and it should be Neptune Aviation.) Wildland Urban Interface. Montana. There is a sound recording associated with this photograph.

1524: Big Creek Lake from Storm Creek Pass
Big Creek Lake from Storm Creek Pass. Bud took this photo during his Powell to Elk Summit trip the summer of 1974, when he started revisiting some of his early-day work stations, in preparation for writing The Lochsa Story. This lake is dammed for agricultural purposes in the Bitterroot Valley. Irrigation. Idaho.

1525: Lockwood Lake in Selway Bitterroots
Wilderness and Civilization class that Bud led througfh the Selway Bitterroot mountains in 1975. This group started at Elk Summit, hiked to Big Sand Lake, then over the pass to Big Creek where they met another group participating in the same program. Bud thinks that this was the first Wilderness and Cvilization class trip after the founding of the Wilderness Institute at UM. Bud is not sure of dates in recording, although process date on the two slides we have so far is 1975. See also 1165. Montana. There is a sound recording associated with this photograph.

1526: Scarred spruce trees
Evidence of an old marten set and trapline in the Selway Lochsa Crags area of the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness. Discussion about the details of this set, and the trappers who may have worked this country. Bud made several trips into the Lochsa country during the 1970s to collect information and writing The Lochsa Story. Good story about the Russian trapper. These trapper names can be found in The Lochsa Story index. Some discussion of how Bud gathered information for writing his book. Idaho. There is a sound recording associated with this photograph.

1527: Remains of a corduroy bridge
Here are the ruins of a corduroy bridge, corduroy meaning split puncheon bridges for horses to travel across a bog or muddy area where the horse might get down in the mud or lose a shoe in the mud. This photo shows the trail coming into the corduroy, and it looks pretty well worn, like many horsemen have passed through here over the years.

1528: Ridge photograph
Bud is unsure of the location of the long ridge in this photo, but he thinks it is probably in the vicinity of the Lochsa Selway crags and Coolwater Ridge, west of there, where there is a lot of this kind of country, which was burned over in 1910 and is coming back now pretty vigorous in alpine forest. This photo was taken during one of Bud's trips to gather information for The Lochsa Story. During the trip that he calls the Elk Summit or "E.S." on the slides, he went from Elk Summit down to McConnell Mountain, Fish Lake, Stanley Butte, Old Man Lake, and into the Lochsa on a ridge called Split Creek Ridge. Other people on this trip included Brooks McKinney, mentioned in this and subsequent recordings and especially 1538. Selway Bitterroot Wilderness. Idaho. There is a sound recording associated with this photograph.

1531: Holding up stringer of fish
This photo was taken at one of several camp sites along the trip discussed in 1528. This trip, and others in 1975, was recorded in journals, so information can all be verified by researching Bud's files. He recorded details for each of these trips, thoughts and day-to-day activities. The man in this photo is Brooks McKinney's partner who was a little ill when the trip started, so he didn't go out with Bud and Brooks the first day, but joined them later. Brooks and Bud started out at Elk Summit and camped out in the Graves Peak range, then the next day at McConnell Mountain (?). "We (all three men) camped three different places where we could fish on this trip. Not sure which one this is." Camps included Warm Springs Creek, Fish Lake, a lake in the crags . . . and also Old Man Lake. "We only fished the last three together. It looks like fish for supper." Selway Bitterroot Wilderness. Idaho.

1536: Fish Lake cabin
Here's a summertime view of the Fish Lake cabin. On earlier slides, we just see the tip of this cabin, beneath about 14 feet of snow. The last time that Bud had heard about this cabin, the Forest Service had left it unlocked, put a sign on the door, "welcome to stay overnight, keep the cabin clean," and so on. So what was once a bustling ranger station now invites the public in to sleep! Selway Bitterroot Wilderness. Idaho.

1538: Brooks McKinney cooking
Brooks McKinney cooking with the modified 'dutch oven' and also good story about Bud and Brooks finding a poacher's cabin near the deep saddle west of Hungry Rock, near the headwaters of Warm Springs Creek, a fork of the Lochsa River. The details of this "find" are also in Bud's journals from this trip. They also found another trapper cabin remains near McConnell Mountain Lookout (below it, in the California Creek and Fish Creek drainage, downstream from where the trail hits the stream. Bud had learned about this cabin location from Dick Walker, who had discovered it when he was a wilderness ranger in this area.). See related slides of cabin ruins. Selway Bitterroot Wilderness.

1548: Regenerating forest post-fire
This scene shows clearly how a climax species can perpetuate itself. It is possible to protect from fire or other disturbances long enough so that the climax species keeps its place in the ecology for quite a long time. Note the young stuff coming back up in this area. Alpine fir. Bud often took photos like this, because he was always thinking about the subject of climax species. Was it possible for a forest to really reach "climax" without a disturbance such as fire? Selway Bitterroot Wilderness. Idaho.
