Freyre Explains
Methods Social
Historians Use
How Brazilian social historians
tracked down the beginnings of their
nation's indigenous culture through
diaries, religious archives, private
papers and early journals was de-
scribed yesterday by Prof. Gilberto
Freyre, social historian from Brazil.
Diaries and autobiographies of
early Brazilians are excellent source
material, Professor Freyre declared.
"Loaded down with the burden of
their own sins, the writing of a diary
was to the Colonial Brazilians what
confession is to the Catholic," he ex-
plained. Hence they contained re-
vealing pictures of the childhood, do-
mestic troubles and other intimate
problems of the early inhabitants.
Valuable to the economic and po-
litical as well as the social historian
are the remnants of private papers
of the old, aristocratic famliies of
Colonial Brazil, he said. Unfortunate-
ly most of them have been destroyed
by the climate which is not favorable
to paper preservation.
Data on the importation, distribu-
tion and origin of early Brazilian
slaves is also meager, Professor Frey-
ere pointed out. He laid the scarcity
to the fact that the destruction of all
papers relating to the holding of
slaves was a major part of the cam-
pagn to abolish slavery.
Information wrung, often by tor-
ture, from 16th Century Brazilians by
agents of the Inquisition is an ex-
cellent source of intimate informa-
tion for socialdhistorians, Professor
Freyre declared. Even priests were
forced to confess their sins to these
Perhaps the most valuable from
the standpoint of class, family and
race history of early Brazil, accord-
ing to Professor Freyre, are the ar-
chives of the ancient religious broth-
erhoods which flourished during
Colonial times. One of the most
important institutions in Brazilian
society, they indicate a close relation
between class and race privilege, he
Neglected until recently by most
historians, the women of colonial
Brazil played an important role in
evolving the indigenous culture of
the country, he observed.
Women married young in old Bra-
zil, he said, and bore an average of 10
children. One was an old maid if
unwed at 20 and old at 40.
Virtually a house prisoner, the
Brazilian woman was seen only in
Church and at Church festivals, Pro-
fessor. Freyre said. The latter, oc-
curring about five times a year, were
the only occasions when women were
allowed to dance.
Inbreeding was characteristic of
the Colonial Brazilian aristocracy,
he declared, attributing it largely to
class prejudice.
Foresters Hold
Excursion, Talk
Forest Timber Projects
Discussed By Matson
A trip to a lumber camp at Amasa
and a talk by Elmer Matson of the
Supervisor's Office of the Ottawa
National Forest highlighted activi-
ties last week-end at Camp Filibert
Roth, University forestry station on
Golden Lake, near Iron River.
Matson, continuing the series of
lectures by guest speakers which has
been held this summer at the camp,
described the Timber Stand Improve-
ment and Timber Sales work being
carried out in the Ottawa Forest. The

objective of the T.S.I. work is to pro-
duce the best possible lumber from the
areas set aide for timber production,
he said. The Timber Sale work fol-
lows this production, and an at-
tempt is made to make the T.S.I.
pay its own way.
The principle objective of the For-
est Service, he emphasized, is to ob-
tain the greatest use of the land for
the benefit of the most people in the
long run.
Bruce Buell, '19F&C, forester for
the Patten Timber Company, led the
trip to the camp of that company
north of Amasa. Each step of the
process of logging from felling and
bucking trees into logs to skidding
and loading the logs onto railroad
cars was observed at first hand. A
crew building railroad grade and lay-
ing ties and rail was also seen.
The trip back out of the woods
was made behind a string of flat cars
loaded with logs bound for the saw
mill. The entire day's trip lasted
from 3:15 a.m. to 6 p.m., but all 59
of the foresters who took it said they
were ready for more like it.
