Charles Burdick, 71, who was with the U.S. Forest Service in Alaska for many years, died February 8 in Dillon, Mont., where he had lived since 1960. He was assigned to Alaska with the Forest Service in 1926 to head the Civilian Conservation Corps in the Yukon River and Arctic Coast areas, and later conducted a roundup of all non-native owned reindeer in that area for the Department of the interior. After serving as general manager of the Alaska Spruce Program, which furnished lumber for the construction of World War II aircraft, he was named assistant regional forester for Alaska and remained in that post until his retirement in 1953, when he entered the investment business in Juneau.
