Description
Records generated within the organizational divisions of Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park concerning the branch of Forestry and Vegetation Management.
Background
Sequoia and Kings Canyon were the second and fourth national parks to be established by the federal government, in 1890 and 1940 respectively. The park’s superintendent began dealing with the intricacies of park resource management by the 1930s. Sequoia National Park, under the direction of park superintendent John R. White, was one of the first parks to face issues associated with the collective effects of development and visitation on the park ecosystems. The federal government established Kings Canyon National Park as a separate park from Sequoia, but for the bulk of its history, it has been administered jointly.
