Ernest Oberholtzer used this tourist information map for planning purposes, likely while serving in his role as head of the Quetico-Superior Council. He is educating about the impact of a proposed federal forest extension and noting sections necessary to be added to the national forest. Crayon-colored areas are shaded for designated forests: green = federal forest, blue = state forest, red = outline of proposed forest extension, and gray = necessary to be added to Superior National Forest under Quetico-Superior Council Program, now not included in federal proposal.
