2008:003: The Bill Goodrum Forestry Collection was created by Bill Goodrum during his tenure managing Temple-Inland’s forests, first as a wildlife biologist and then Manager of Forest Environmental Issues. The collection contains subject files, correspondence, administrative files, publications, and audiovisual media and includes documents pertaining to forest management, wildlife management, environmental concerns, and compliance with industry initiatives in regards to environmental controls and protection.
2008:006: When Temple-Inland prepared to sell their forestlands in 2007, they remained committed to conserving the ecologically rare and significant conservation lands that were located within the sale block. In order to draw attention to these unique areas, company personnel prepared this binder for the benefit of prospective buyers.
2008:012: Temple-Inland kept physical records on all of the land it owned. As the company bought and sold lands, the records were consolidated and organized, and eventually the company stored all land records at the building located at 700 N. Temple Drive, Diboll, TX. In order to make all of these records available to all of its land and timber personnel, the company digitized every land document and organized them into the LATS system. When Temple-Inland sold its land to The Cambell Group in 2007, they transferred many of their land records to The History Center. The company donated a copy of its land records on the LATS system in 2008.
