Cornell University and Northern Wisconsin’s Pinelands: A Cost/Benefit Analysis

Wednesday, May 15 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Zoom Webinar

Cornell University Founder Ezra Cornell leveraged New York State’s allocation of public lands under the Morrill Act of 1862 to select over 512,000 acres of pine timberland in northern Wisconsin which he, and later the University, managed as a long-term real-estate investment for over seventy years. This talk will discuss the ongoing financial benefits accruing to Cornell University from its former Wisconsin landholdings and assess its impacts over time on Wisconsin’s environment and human populations.

Presenter: Jon Parmenter is an associate professor of History at Cornell University who teaches courses on early American and Indigenous North American history. He is currently completing a book entitled “Dispossessed: Cornell University’s Origins in Indian Country.”
