Title World War II Rubber Project
Catalog Number 2004.013.003
Object Name Clippings
Scope & Content World War II Forest Service Rubber Project.
>> During the war, Forest Service employees were assigned to a project to produce rubber from plants native to other parts of the world. The project was needed since the war had restricted United States access to rubber trees and synthetic rubber was not available early in the war.

Guayule and the (Russian dandelion) Kok Sagyl were two of the plants.
Photocopies to news articles (believe mostly form the Missoula, MT newspapers) describe the project.
