FHO Copyright Policy
This policy describes the rights of creators and Forest History Ontario in relation to copyrightable material published or used by Forest History Ontario.

The FHO makes it relatively easy to participate in this process. Holders of historical items are encouraged to contact Mark Kuhlberg (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), who has been acting as a liaison between potential donors and archival repositories for over twenty years. After learning of the nature of the collection, Mark will contact an appropriate repository and begin the process of having the materials donated to it.

To date, the FHO has been involved in overseeing the donation of nearly a dozen collections. They have included the minute books from the Ontario Forest Industries Association, the papers from a number of former foresters (including Donald McDonald, Canada's last Dominion Forester, W.K. Fullerton and Benjamin F. Avery), and documents, company magazines and photographs from the Kalamazoo Vegetable Parchment Company and Austin-Nicholson Lumber Company.
