    PCHS Annual Meeting and Presentation

    Presenting: North Woods Ingenuity and the Advent of the Modern Logging Industry. 
    - The Past 150 years has been a time of technological transformation of logging from human, animal, and steam power to the power of the internal combustion engine and hydraulics. 
    - What is striking about this transformation are the innovations and inventions by the loggers themselves.
    - This year's Annual Meeting will feature a presentation by PCHS member Dale Heikkinen, of Prentice. Dale's father Leo Heikkinen, was instrumental in the development of the hydraulic knuckle-boom loader, now the essential piece of equipment on logging trucks you and I see almost daily traveling Highway 13.
