Scope & Content This series forms part of the George Davis papers and consists of an interview (on four audiotape reels) conducted at the Adirondack Museum, Blue Mountain Lake, N.Y., April 5, 1976, by William K. Verner, curator of the museum at the time. The interview records a discussion between Verner and Davis about the history of the Temporary Study Commission on the Future of the Adirondacks and the Adirondack Park Agency. The discussion touched on a number of topics relating to the environment including issues of legislation, private and public land use, and the Fisher Law [(Section 480) a tax incentive program designed to encourage the preservation of open space owned by private landowners in exchange for tax breaks]. The repository also has available a transcript of the interview and notes taken by Verner regarding topics discussed. In these notes, marginal numbers indicate footage readings as registered on the Tandberg full track tape recorder counter. This series is contained in box 9.
