On July 19, 1909, Aldo Leopold was appointed as forest assistant at the Apache National Forest just outside Springerville, in the Arizona Territory. During the two decades he spent with the U.S. Forest Service, Leopold got married to Estella Bergere and suffered from a case of acute nephritis (Bright's disease). Leopold's approach to game management was based on principles of forest management. For his successes in the Southwest, Leopold received a letter of congratulation from Theodore Roosevelt in January 1917 and a gold medal from Hornaday's Permanent Wild Life Protection Fund in July. In January 1918, Leopold left the U.S. Forest Service to take the position of secretary of the Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce. In August 1919, he rejoined the Forest Service as an assistant district forester. In April 1924, he became assistant director of the Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin. In 1928, the Sporting Arms and Ammunitions Manufacturers' Institute approached Leopold with an offer to conduct a nationwide survey of game conditions. Leopold agreed.
