Biographical Sketch

Stephen Tyng Mather, first director of the U.S. National Park Service, was born in San Francisco on July 4, 1867. Here he attended the Boys High School, and went on to the University of California at Berkeley, graduating in 1887. His interest in journalism led to his first job as a cub reporter on the New York Sun in September of that year. He left this employment shortly after his marriage to Jane Thacker Floy in 1893 to become a member of the New York office of the Pacific Coast Borax Company. An astute businessman, Mather had the idea of publicizing household uses for borax, and in 1894 opened an office in Chicago. By 1898, he formed his own successful company, the Thockildsen-Mather Borax Company.
Mather left his lucrative business position in January 1915 to accept, at the invitation of his former classmate, Secretary of the Interior Franklin K. Lane, the directorship of the newly formed National Park Service, where he remained until failing health and a stroke led to his resignation in 1929 and to his premature death on January 22, 1930.

Scope and Content

The Papers contain some early correspondence concerning Mather's work with F. M. Smith and the borax companies. For the most part, however, they relate to Mather's later years as Director of the National Park Service and include letters of acceptance or regret for a dinner honoring Mather in November 1926, expressions of sympathy on his illness in 1928 and on his resignation in 1929, from National Park personnel and friends and colleagues throughout the United States. Also in the collection are letters of condolence to Mrs. Mather; correspondence and papers concerning memorial services for Mather which were held in many national parks; papers relating to Mather's student days at the University of California; a few account books and diaries; invitations to official functions; and clippings and scrapbooks covering his years as journalist on the New York Sun and as director of the National Park Service.
