Description : Excerpt from Select List of References on the Conservation of Natural Resources in the United States This is the third list in which the Division of Bibliography has had the cooperation of the State and Legislative Reference librarians throughout the country. Some of the cooperatorssuggested that arguments in favor of Federal control andarguments in favor of state control be separately grouped. A great many references could be arranged quite naturally under the one or the other of these heads, but the bulk of the material did not lend itself to such treatment. It seemed best to meet the needs of debaters by means of the index under the headings Federal control, Federal vs. state control, and State control, and to adopt a classification more nearly suited to the character of the subject. The references have therefore been classified under the headings Bibliography, General works, Mineral resources, Water, Forests, Land and soil, and Human life. The conservation of human life opens up the whole subject of public health and hygiene and also of eugenics. These are not included in the list, the references in this section being confined to general discussions of the movement, its heeds and opportunities. The Canadian conservation question is so closely akin to ours, and touches us at so many points, that a brief section has been devoted to Canada. It includes only a few even of the more important references, but those desiring additional material will find an abundance in the Catalogue of Publications of the Canadian Commission of Conservation, a copy of which was received from Mr. James White, Secretary of the Commission, too late to go into the body of the list. Mention should also be made of the Bibliography prepared by Mr. Arthur V. White, and printed on pages 347-376 of the report on the Water-Powers of Canada published by the Canadian Commission of Conservation in 1911.
