Collection 2491 - The Robert J. Behnke Papers, 1957-2000

Creator: Behnke, Robert J.

Provenance Note: The Robert J. Behnke Papers were dontated to Montana State University on August 30, 2006 by Robert J. Behnke of Fort Collins, Colorado.

Historical Note: Robert J. Behnke was born in Stamford, Connecticut on December 30, 1929. He attended high school in Stamford and early developed a keen interest in fishing and nature. In 1952 Behnke was drafted into the U.S. Army and served in Japan and Korea until 1954 when he returned to the United States and enrolled in the University of Connecticut. He earned a bachelor's degree in zoology in 1957 with an honors distinction for a published paper on the freshwater fishes of Connecticut. Behnke next attended the University of California, Berkeley where he earned a zoology master's degree in 1960 with a research thesis on trouts of the Great Basins. He continued on at UC Berkeley to earn his PhD in 1965, writing a dissertation of the systematics of family Salmonidae. Behnke's post graduate career took him and his wife to the Soviet Union where he was an American Academy of Science exchange scholar. During his ten months in the USSR, he gained a proficiency in the Russian language as he continued work on salmonid fishes and of Russian fisheries. For many years afterwards he served as a translation editor for Scripta Technica for English translations of Russian journals. When the Behnkes returned to the United States, Robert briefly taught ichthyology at the University of California and then moved to Colorado where from 1966 to 1974 he was Assistant Leader of the Colorado Cooperative Fishery Unit, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, at Colorado State University. From 1975 to 1999, Behnke was half time special professor at C.S.U. teaching fisheries, aquatic biology and conservation courses, developing the university's first course in conservation biology. He also has served in a variety of consulting and advising jobs and served on numerous panels and committees for state and federal agencies. Behnke once wrote on his life's research work by reflecting that his "career covers the period of the transition from the strictly anthropocentric, utilitarian based management of natural resources to a more ecocentric, holistic ecosystem form of management based on Aldo Leopold's land ethic. My work and publications over a 40 year period reflect this transition." Behnke's publications include: Trout and Salmon of North America (New York: Free Press, 2002); Native Trout of Western North America (Bethesda, Md.: American Fisheries Society, 1992) Monograph of the native trouts of the genus Salmo of Western North America (Written under contract for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 1979); "Wild trout fisheries and hatchery programs for the future." In Proceedings of the American Fishery Society Symposium, Reno, Nevada, January 1982; Endangered and threatened fishes of the Upper Colorado River Basin. Colorado State

Content Description Note: The Robert J. Behnke papers include a vast array of created and collected material representing his many years as a consultant with experts, students and interested parties on his specialty of studying the trout and samonid families of fishes. The first series of the collection consists of general research topical files containing information about genetics, water conditions (limnology), management of fisheries and conservation challenges for fish populations, on the locations of many species of fishes around the world with concentration on the Northwest regions of the U.S. and research about the various specific species within his specialty. The second series consists of focused research, based on Behnke's work directly related to his publications, teaching, and consulting work. These topical files pertain to published and unpublished books and papers, professional and personal correspondence, reprinted articles of a wide variety of studies, drafts of manuscripts, photocopied or original articles and newspaper clippings, legal papers related to his consulting work with fishery and water issues, reports and studies by universities, fish and wildlife agencies and other related groups. He participated in symposia on fishes, and retained student papers and theses of interest to him. Also present are materials from his teaching classes in various aspects of fish species and environment. There are photos, maps, diagrams for use in published works, memorabilia, and papers related to organizations and societies for which he had membership.

Dr. Behnke's method of retaining many of his research papers depended on their placement in topically labeled envelopes, with a wide variety of photocopied journal articles, correspondence, notes, and other materials all retained together. In the processing of his papers, the retention of those envelope contents was considered a priority, making a division of materials based on document type impractical. Therefore, although there are folders of "correspondence" per se, many other letters can be found within the contents of topically labeled folders as well. Behnke also retained much of his correspondence in the envelopes they came in with notes of interest written upon the outside of those envelopes, necessitating the retention of both. Photocopied journal articles and journal offprints were also retained within the collection, although some, which bore no significant marginalia, were discarded if they were found to be readily available in the Montana State University Trout and Salmonid print collection or in online journal sources. In those discard cases, the photocopied title page, with citation information, was retained in the pertinent subject folder for research convenience.

Series 2: Focused research files, 1957-2000

Photocopied journal and book articles, research notes, bibliographies, and correspondence pertaining to Behnke's publications, consulting work, and teaching. These files include some personal correspondence along with professional correspondence exchanged with other scientists and interested parties. The drafts of many Behnke publications are also in this series, along with the work produced by many of his students. For the most part, photocopied published materials have been retained when they bear significant marginalia or are not readily available elsewhere, although copies of most of Behnke's own published work has been retained with this series regardless of any marginal notes.
