CommentsLowwood holds a partial photocopy, including map. Footnote 5 reads: The term "Cutover" ususally refers to the logged-over counties of northern Wisconsin, which were characterized by land ill-suited to agriculture, high rates of tax delinquency and land abandonment, a sparse population, and a low standard of living. These conditions prevailed in many of the central "sand counties" as well. By 1938, the Wisconsin State Planning Board included Wood, Adams, Juneau, Monroe, and Jackson (but not Portage) counties within the officially designated boundaries of the Cutover.
