William R. Schofield held a variety of forestry-related jobs. The U.S. Forest Service engaged young Schofield in seasonal and regular assignments before and after he graduated with a forestry degree from the University of Idaho in 1916. In the decade after World War I, he held jobs with county and state governments, a lumber company, and a lumber trade association. He moved from Montana to Eureka, California in the mid-1920s; then to Sacramento in 1931, where he remained deeply involved for forty years. The State of California employed Schofield for twelve years in the Tax Research Bureau and the State Board of Equalization, until he accepted a position with the California Forest Protection Association in 1943. Following 18 years with the CFPA he entered private consulting and legislative advocacy. One of his most highly acclaimed contributions was his collaboration on the California Forest Practice Act of 1945.
