Description: Robert M. (Bob) Frank, Jr., spent his career with the U.S. Forest Service and oversaw the long-term silvicultural research on the Penobscot Experimental Forest in Maine for nearly 30 years. His reflections here span more than four decades, from his first days with the Forest Service until his retirement in 1996. He touches upon the agency's relations with members of the forest industry and the public, changes in the agency's culture and funding over time, and his role in establishing and sustaining long-term studies that continue to this day.

Keywords: Orman Carroll, Arthur Hart, management intensity demonstration area, Marinus Westveld, long-term forest research, Maine
