MC 00035 Guide to the Carl Alwin Schenck Papers, 1865 - 1959

The collection is divided into nine series. The first of these, Diaries, is comprised of journals kept by Schenck between 1890 and 1954. Schenck's personal Correspondence makes up the second series. The next series is comprised of Schenck's Writings in both English and German between 1890 and 1954.

The fifth series details Schenck's experiences as head forester at George Vanderbilt's Biltmore Estate and Forest. Information regarding the Biltmore Forest School and its students is provided in the sixth series of the collection. The seventh series of the collection is comprised of Photographs, including black and white prints, glass plate negatives, and numerous photo albums.

The first series of the collection, the Diaries, records personal notes, schedules, and appointments made by Schenck between 1890 and 1954. Most diaries include notations made in both English and German and often reflect a system of shorthand devised by Schenck and used throughout the journals. With the exception of a few lapses, this series contains a journal for almost every year of Schenck's professional life. Therefore, information pertaining to Schenck's tenure at the Biltmore Estate and Forest, his administration of the Biltmore Forest School, and his numerous personal and professional travels are included in these journals. One notable lapse in the diaries occurs between 1914 and 1920, during which time Schenck participated in World War I. For detailed information on Schenck's experiences during the war, the third series, Writings, contains a monograph authored by Schenck on the subject.

The Correspondence series includes all letters addressed both to and from Schenck. Written between 1895 and 1955, the letters are written in both English and German. The series is divided into four primary subseries: professional correspondence, letters to and from forestry colleagues, correspondence with former students from the Biltmore Forest School, and general correspondence. Within the subseries of professional correspondence, letters pertain either to the Biltmore Estate and Forest or the Biltmore Forest School. These letters roughly date from 1895, the year in which Schenck assumed his leadership role at the Biltmore Estate, to 1914, the year the Biltmore Forest School closed. For most of his professional life, Schenck continued to correspond with many of his colleagues, many of whom are considered to be the founders of the profession of forestry. Letters from Sir Dietrich Brandis, Frederick Law Olmstead, Gifford Pinchot, Overton Price, and Sir William Schlich are all highlighted in this series. A large portion of Schenck's correspondence is dedicated to his former students at the Biltmore Forest School. These letters, extending far past the students' graduation from the school, demonstrate the close relationship between Dr. Schenck and "his boys." A number of student letters accompanied care packages that were sent to Schenck in Germany in the wake of World War II. Schenck carefully recorded the contents of each package in letters back to students, which reflect the extreme poverty and economic shortages experienced by Germans. Finally, any general correspondence received or sent by Schenck is arranged at the end of the series in chronological order.

Series Six provides a wealth of archival information on the Biltmore Forest School, the first forestry school in the United States. In addition to general information on the history of the school, this series contains several publications produced by the school. These publications include a complete run of the school newsletter, "The Biltmore Doings," alumni newsletters for the years 1948 - 1957, and a manuscript of "The Biltmore Immortals". Also included is a subseries detailing the many trips taken by students across the United States and Europe as part of the school's curriculum.
The highlight of the school series is the documents pertaining to the students of the Biltmore Forest School. Several students donated their personal diaries, classroom notes, and exams that testify to their experiences at the Biltmore Forest School. Biographical material for many students is also included, the majority of which were written by the students themselves for inclusion in "The Biltmore Immortals". Correspondence from students to their families and fellow classmates can be found in this series as well. Among these letters is a series of postcards sent by BFS student Howard Krinbill to his parents during his time at the school. Beginning in the fall of 1908, these postcards detail Krinbill's daily activities, the students' impressions of Dr. Schenck, and information on the students' housing conditions and diets.

Scope and Content

This collection provides a detailed look into the personal and professional life of Carl Alwin Schenck, the founder of the first American school of forestry. Information regarding Schenck's political and economic troubles with the United States government is provided, as is biographical information on Schenck. The collection contains diaries recording personal notes, schedules, and appointments made by Schenck between 1890 and 1954. Therefore, information pertaining to Schenck's tenure at the Biltmore Estate and Forest, his administration of the Biltmore Forest School, and his numerous personal and professional travels are included in these journals.

In addition to Schenck's diaries, the collection includes letters addressed both to and from Schenck written between 1895 and 1955. The letters include professional correspondence, correspondence with former students from the Biltmore Forest School, and general correspondence. For most of his professional life, Schenck continued to correspond with many of his colleagues, many of whom are considered to be the founders of the profession of forestry.

Writings, such as Schenck's field notes of logging operations throughout Europe and the United States, as well as several manuscripts of professional literature and poetry written by Schenck, are contained in this collection. Schenck's technical reports on European forests, his doctoral dissertation, miscellaneous publications, and a collection of legends and fairy tales that he compiled are included here as well. Throughout his life, Schenck traveled for both business and pleasure, and information on these journeys is provided.

Documents pertaining to Schenck's term as head forester at George Vanderbilt's Biltmore Estate and Forest, which contain general information regarding the house and forest, are included, as are technical reports, budgets, and maps compiled by Schenck. These materials provide an in-depth, detailed look into the inner workings of one of America's largest private homes.

The collection contains a wealth of archival information on the Biltmore Forest School, the first forestry school in the United States. In addition to general information on the history of the school, the collection contains several publications produced by the school, as well as describing the students' experiences at the school. Biographical information students for many students is also included, the majority of which were written by the students themselves for inclusion in "The Biltmore Immortals". Correspondence from students to their families and fellow classmates can be found in this series as well.

Photographs, including black and white prints, negatives, and albums, cover many topics, ranging from personal to professional travel, the Biltmore Estate and Forest, and the Biltmore Forest School. Included among these photographs are pictures of Schenck, his wife, forestry colleagues, the Vanderbilts, and BFS students. Finally, the collection contains artifacts pertaining to Schenck's personal life and the Biltmore Forest School.

Biographical Note

Dr. Carl Alwin Schenck was born in 1868 in Darmstadt, Germany. The grandson of a chief forester, Schenck studied forestry at Tubingen and Giessen Universities and entered the state forest service in Hessen in 1890. Through his work experiences, Schenck became acquainted with Sir Dietrich Brandis, the foremost forester at the time. Between 1891 and 1894, Schenck spent his summers as an assistant to Brandis and Sir William Schlich during several European forestry tours. After receiving his Ph.D. in 1894, Schenck was recommended by Brandis and Gifford Pinchot to assume the role of chief forester of George Vanderbilt's Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Schenck's arrival in the United States was revolutionary in the world of forestry, as he was the first man in the country with thorough training in scientific forestry.

In 1898, with Vanderbilt's permission, the Biltmore Forest School (BFS) opened. The first school of forestry in the United States, BFS graduated 400 students in its fifteen year history, many of whom went on to successful careers in the field of forestry. Although the school flourished for a short time, enthusiasm for training in scientific forestry began to wane in 1910, and Schenck eventually closed the school in 1913.

With World War I dawning, Schenck returned to Germany in 1914. He served in the German army during the war as an officer on the Russian front, where he was severely wounded in combat. After the war, Schenck spent most of the 1920s and 1930s travelling across Europe and the United States. Between 1922 and 1924, he conducted forest tours in Germany and Switzerland for English and American students. In 1925, Schenck traveled back to the United States to lecture at several forestry schools, notably, the University of Montana in Missoula. For the next ten years, Schenck continued to give tours and lectures to forestry students around the world.

The ease with which Schenck could travel ended in 1939 with the onset of World War II. Schenck spent the entire war in Germany in the small village of Lindenfels. After the war, Schenck was appointed by the United States military government as chief forester of the new American state of Hessen. Although his appointment demonstrates his loyalty to the United States, Schenck's German citizenship still caused several problems for him after the war. For the last ten years of his life, Schenck battled the United States government in an Alien Property Custody Suit in an attempt to reclaim property and money that was confiscated at the beginning of the war. Despite the efforts of his colleagues and former students to intervene on his behalf, Schenck's efforts were unsuccessful.

In 1951, at the age of 83, Schenck returned to the United States for a nationwide tour. The trip included the dedication of several woodland groves and forests named in honor of Dr. Schenck and a reunion of the Biltmore Forest School students. Schenck would again be honored in 1952 by North Carolina State College, which awarded him an honorary Doctor of Forest Science degree.

Schenck died on May 17, 1955 at the age of 87. The author of numerous textbooks and a founding member of several professional organizations in the field, Dr. Schenck is regarded as a pioneer in European and American forestry.
