Welcome to The Ernest Thompson Seton Institute!
This site was originally envisioned by Dee Seton Barber, daughter of Ernest Thompson Seton and Julia M. Seton. Dee devoted much of her life to preserving her father’s legacy and connecting people from across the globe who read his stories, follow his Woodcraft principles, and share his great love of nature. Sadly, she passed away in 2006 after a long illness.
The site was built in the 1990s and has kept up with technology improvements over the years by Ron Edmonds, a long-time Seton enthusiast and researcher. Today, this site is the core of the Institute, dedicated to re-engaging with Seton admirers, and scholars and introducing his works to new generations.
We invite you to explore the site as well as the links we’ve assembled. We are expanding and in the near future, will be adding podcasts and videos. Check back often!
