Biographical Note

Clifton R. Merritt was born in November 1919 in the Prickly Pear Valley (now known as the Helena Valley) of Montana. He grew up on the cattle ranch his grandfather settled in the 1890s near the Gates of the Wilderness Mountains along the upper Missouri River. In his youth he was plagued by illness including polio and a triple heart valve leakage at age 15. Despite these physical ailments, Merritt was an avid hunter, fisherman, and hiker, often enjoying these activities with his twin brother, Don.

Clif attended college at Carroll College in Helena, Montana taking courses in liberal arts and sociology. After leaving Carroll, Merritt moved to Kalispell, Montana, and worked for the Bureau of Employment Security and Montana State Employment Service. He rose to Field Supervisor for the Bureau of Employment Security which involved hiring, training, and supervising of over 150 employees in nine (or more) field offices. Merritt held this position from 1953-1964.

During his time in Kalispell, Merritt helped found the Montana Wilderness Association in 1957. He also served in various positions for the Montana Wildlife Federation from 1950 to 1964. With these organizations, Merritt was a leader in getting the Montana Stream Preservation Act adopted and halting the establishment of the Spruce Park and Glacier View dams on the Flathead River, as well as spearheading the movement to get the 15,000 acre Jewel Basin Hiking Area established.

In 1964, Clifton Merritt became director of field services for The Wilderness Society. He began his work in Washington, DC, lobbying for the establishment of the Wilderness Act of 1964. Believing that the wilderness movement needed to garner the support of local citizens in order to add areas to the National Wilderness Preservation System, Merritt established The Wilderness Society’s Western Regional Office in Denver, Colorado, in 1966. In the Regional Office, Merritt trained and supervised a 15-person professional staff of natural resource specialists and field representatives stationed throughout the West. Through the efforts of Merritt and his staff, working closely with local groups, millions of acres were added to the National Wilderness Preservation System. Among those added were the Scapegoat, Absaroka-Beartooth, and River of No Return Wildernesses in Montana and the Weminuche, Flat Tops, and Eagles Nest Wildernesses in Colorado. After an organizational shakeup and upon hearing of the planned closing of the Regional Office, Merritt resigned from the Wilderness Society in 1978.

In 1979, Merritt, Sally Ranney, and Jerry Mallet, seeing a need left by the closing of The Wilderness Society’s Regional Office, formed The American Wilderness Alliance (known after 1983 as American Wildlands) based in Denver, Colorado. The organization worked with conservation groups throughout the Rocky Mountain West to preserve public lands for wildlife habitat and recreation. The American Wilderness Alliance was instrumental in getting the 161,000 acre Elkhorn National Wildlife Management Area established in Montana as well as ensuring the passage of the Colorado Wilderness Bill which gave wilderness designation to 1.4 million acres of public lands. In addition to serving as executive director, Merritt also edited the organization’s Wild America magazine and wrote and edited its On the Wild Side newsletter.

In 1984, Clifton Merritt returned to Montana and settled in the Bitterroot Valley. He still maintained the executive directorship of American Wildlands and the organization relocated to Bozeman, Montana, later that year. In 1990, Merritt stepped back from the executive directorship and became associate executive director. It was in 1990 that Merritt began the Corridors of Life Program. The Program used Geographic Information Systems to map wildlife migration corridors between roadless areas and established wilderness areas. As of 2009, American Wildlands’ Corridors of Life Program continues to work to restore and maintain wildlife corridors.

In 1998, at age 79, Clifton Merritt stepped down as associate executive director of American Wildlands. Though no longer in a leadership role at the organization, Merritt continued to support wilderness and environmental initiatives as a member of the organization he had helped found. He also continued to support local wilderness issues through membership with the organization Friends of the Bitterroot and continued membership with the Montana Wilderness Association and Montana Wildlife Federation.

Clifton Merritt had been a prolific writer all his life and his retirement afforded him more time for this interest. He began to pen his memoirs of the wilderness movement, which he titled Beyond the Roads. He also began work on a history of his grandfather’s settlement in the Prickly Pear Valley which he called I Remember my Grandfather. Merritt died on August 12, 2008 at the age of 89.

Content Description

The Clifton R. Merritt Papers have been organized into seven series arranged by the periods in Merritt’s professional career. The majority of the series have been further subdivided into subseries, reflecting the order in which they were maintained by Merritt. The largest series in this collection relates to Merritt's time with American Wildlands and includes planning documents, committee minutes, and extensive correspondence files.

Of particular interest within this collection are documents and correspondence related to the recommendation of new wilderness areas into the National Wilderness Preservation System signed into law in 1964. The collection also contains documents related to the research and development of the Corridors of Life Program, which mapped wildlife migration corridors between roadless areas and established wilderness areas. The papers include a small portion of personal writings and correspondence including drafts and research for Merritt’s memoirs titled Beyond the Roads and his family history titled I Remember my Grandfather. The papers also contain awards and certificates received by Clifton R. Merritt.

Acquisition Information :  

The collection was acquired by the Archives from Clifton R. Merritt’s daughter, Sherry Essig, in 2008.

Processing Note :  

Clifton R. Merritt’s daughter, Sherry Essig, cleaned and arranged some materials and folders prior to their arrival at the Archives. Unfoldered and loose materials were foldered during processing at the Archives. Original order was largely maintained throughout the collection, with the exception that within subseries folders were arranged in a stricter alphabetical order to facilitate access. In 2006, Robert Baker (who was writing a thesis about Clif Merritt) loaned the Archives two notebooks of documents supporting an honorary degree proposal for Clif Merritt. A copy was made for the Archives and a copy was given to Sherry Essig. In 2013 the Archives' copy was added to Series VII, Subseries 1 although it is very likely that the original documents exist elsewhere in the collection.

Separated Materials :  

Most bound monographs, congressional records, and published congressional reports were separated from the collection during processing.

Bibliography :  

    In 2005 Robert N. Baker submitted a MA thesis to The University of Montana entitled Clif Merritt and Wilderness Wildlife: Learning How to Live in Paradise.

Series IV:  The American Wilderness Alliance / American Wildlands, 1957-2007
29.5 linear feet

In 1979, Clif Merritt, Sally Ranney, and Jerry Mallet formed The American Wilderness Alliance (known after 1983 as American Wildlands) based in Denver, Colorado. The organization worked with conservation groups throughout the Rocky Mountain West to preserve public lands for wildlife habitat and recreation. Merritt served as executive director until 1990, when he became associate executive director. In 1990, Merritt began the Corridors of Life Program, which used Geographic Information Systems to map wildlife migration corridors between roadless areas and established wilderness areas.
