John McBride


John McBrideForestry Pioneer

John received a BS in Forestry from the University of Maine in 1952, but spent the balance of his professional forestry career in Montana, working for J. Neils Lumber company, which later merged with St. Regis Paper company. When St. Regis sold to Champion, John became the Kootenai Block Forest Manager.  After 38 years as a professional forester, all in Lincoln county, John retired.  Of his retirement, John has said, "I do not fish, don't ski, and flatly refuse to play golf."  He is an avid hunter and collector of weapons, with a special interest in infantry and military history.
