Clinton Huxley Coulter, Sr.
In his letter of nomination, former Governor LeRoy Collins cited Clinton Huxley Coulter, Sr.’s character, performance, duty and extraordinary service to Florida, especially in directing progress for Florida’s timber resources. Coulter is credited with a key role in the creation of the Withlacoochee and Blackwater River State Forests. He worked for creation of a slash pine nursery, hired foresters on a local level to help small landowners and was instrumental in the program that has seen the growth of two billion seedlings. His leadership over the years was important in helping Florida’s forestry income increase from $140 million in 1928 to $1.4 billion in 1969 when he retired as State Forester.
