August "Gus" Ludwig Hormay Papers, 1900-1999

Collection 2451 - Series 4
Box 18

This series consists of chronologically arranged publications written or co-authored by Hormay, primarily on topics related to the vegetation and management of rangelands. Many were published as reports by the Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station but also appeared in several journals and conference proceedings, 1936-1977. This includes two versions of his classic "Principles of Rest-Rotation Grazing and Multiple-Use Land Management" (September 1970), which summarizes the methodology of rest-rotation grazing.
