Letter from Gifford Pinchot to W. G. Steel

Description:

In his letter to W. G. Steel, Gifford Pinchot sums up the reasons why a national park should be established around Crater Lake. First, it is "one of the great natural wonders of this continent." As a well-known resort, valued for recreation and scenery, Crater Lake can be managed and protected as a national park, rather than as a forest reserve, since there will not be any timber production. The Chairman of the Public Lands Committee, John Fletcher Lacey, is in favor of passing the bill to create the park as well.
