Publications of Aldo Leopold

Aldo Leopold Archives - Guidelines for CitationAldo Leopold published about five hundred distinct items, including articles, addresses, essays, books, pamphlets, reviews, reports, and even a few poems. His publications, together with mimeographed serials that he edited and a few items that appeared in other mimeographed serials, are listed in chronological order in this bibliography, and from the most to the least precise date of publication. About one hundred additional items that were reprinted in various books, periodicals, and pamphlets during his lifetime are listed under the citation of original publication.

The basis for this bibliography was a "Preliminary Bibliography of Aldo Leopold," included in the Wildlife Research News Letter no. 35 of the University of Wisconsin Department of Wildlife Management, issued May 3, 1948, shortly after Leopold's death. More than two hundred items, including original citations, reprints, several mimeographed entries, and a few posthumous publications, have been added to the bibliography by Susan Flader, who also verified all citations in the original publications, where possible, and completed or corrected them. Unverified citations may not be complete or entirely accurate, but there is sufficient evidence, such as a clipping or copy of the item itself, to indicate that it was in fact published. We welcome additions or corrections to the bibliography.

Aldo Leopold is sole author of all cited items unless otherwise noted. Where he is listed as joint author with other individuals, he ordinarily served as principal author, except perhaps for a few committee reports for which another individual is identified as chairman. Titles of articles, essays, poems, etc., are lowercased, while titles of books, periodicals, and pamphlets are capitalized. Identification of untitled items and other explanatory information is enclosed in brackets.

Many but not all of Leopold's publications may be found in Boxes 1-2 of series 6, arranged in roughly chronological order in the various volumes and folders, while drafts of some may be found in other boxes in series 6 (Writings) or elsewhere in the collection.
