Proclamation, March 3, 1926

Purpose: Addition of lands to the Whitman National Forest

Date: March 3, 1926

(Original document available here)

Whereas, since the issuance of the proclamation of January 31, 1917, the boundaries of the Whitman National Forest, in Oregon, have been changed through transfer of the Minam National Forest thereto by Executive order of June 20, 1920; and

Whereas, it appears that certain of the public lands described in the act of Congress approved March 4, 1925 (43 Stat., 1282), found by the Secretary of Agriculture to be chiefly valuable for national forest purposes, should be added to the Whitman National Forest;

Now, therefore, I, CALVIN COOLIDGE, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the power in me vested by the aforesaid act of March 4, 1925, entitled “An Act To authorize the addition of certain lands to the Whitman National Forest”, do proclaim that the following described public lands are hereby added to the Whitman National Forest, subject to prior valid claims:

Willamette Meridian

In T. 10 S., R. 37 E., SE1/4 NW1/4 Sec. 31, SE1/4 SW1/4 and S1/2 SE1/4 Sec. 32, SW1/4 SW1/4 Sec. 33 and W1/2 SE1/4 Sec. 34;

In T. 11 S., R. 37 E., Lots 1, 2, 3 and 4, S1/2 NW1/4 and NE1/4 SW1/4 Sec. 5 and Lot 3 Sec. 6.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington this third day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and twenty six, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and fiftieth.
