Historical NoteReturn to Top

Jeffrey LaLande worked as an independent historian outside of his Forest Service career, and this collection resulted from his independent research. These papers include correspondence with researchers on various topics; files from essays, articles, book reviews, and books he has written; and his peer reviews, requested by various editors, of manuscripts submitted for publication.

For more than thirty years, LaLande was the forest archaeologist for the Rogue River National Forest (called Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest since 2002), where he was responsible for its cultural resource management and heritage program. He served concurrently as the forest historian, and for many years also held Forest 's wilderness coordinator position. He was also an adjunct professor of history at Southern Oregon University for more than 20 years, and currently (2014) offers professional services as a historical and archaeological consultant.

A 1969 graduate of Georgetown University, LaLande earned a master's degree in archaeology from Oregon State University and a Ph.D. in history from the University of Oregon. He has authored numerous articles and several books and is knowledgeable about a wide range of Northwest history topics.
