Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This is a collection of typed, signed manuscripts by Frank A. Schilling. Most are manuscripts from the Conservation Association of Los Angeles County's broadcasts on KECA as part of the Chaparral Club program, from 1932 October 28-1937 September.
The Conservation Association of Los Angeles County was founded in 1924 after a summer of devastating mountain wildfires. It was closely tied to the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the organization was to promote fire prevention and water conservation and to give the chamber influence over public conservation education, technical advice to governments, and the shaping of conservation policies.
