Organizational History

Save the Redwoods League protects redwood forests from destruction; works with the California State Parks and the National Park Service to establish redwood parks and reserves; purchases redwood groves by private subscription; fosters better understanding of the value of these trees to current and future generations; and supports conservation and restoration of forest areas. In 1917, Stephen Tyng Mather, the first director of the National Park Service, inspired conservationists John Campbell Merriam, Madison Grant and Henry Fairfield Osborn to investigate the state of redwood forests in Northern California. The new Redwood Highway had opened the area to more logging, which threatened the ancient trees. The trio visited established logging operations on the Mendocino County Coast, and still undisturbed forests along the Eel River. Continuing north, they reached Humboldt County and the Bull Creek-Dyerville Flat area, where gigantic redwoods soared more than 300 feet. Awed by the trees’ beauty and serenity, and troubled by the devastation that logging had wrought along the Redwood Highway, Merriam, Grant, and Osborn agreed that a national or state park was necessary to save part of the redwood forest. This motivated the founders, with the support of others, to establish Save the Redwoods League in 1918. The League soon received its first donations to purchase redwood lands, and in 1919, hired its first Executive Director, Newton Bishop Drury.
Throughout its history, the League has worked with activists, private donors, legislators – and often with lumber companies – to purchase and protect redwoods. The League established a memorial grove program as a way for donors to save trees and honor loved ones. In 1921, the first grove was established in honor of World War I veteran, Raynal C. Bolling. As its centennial approached, the League had dedicated over 1,000 memorial groves and preserved nearly 200,000 acres of redwoods.
The fight to save the redwoods affected the preservation of land in parks throughout California. In 1928, the League led the campaign that won public approval of legislation that established the California state park system and allocated $6 million in funds to acquire state park lands. Land purchased by the League is generally donated to national or state parks for public use and permanent protection.
Some of the League’s key projects include: acquisition and preservation of groves in Humboldt Redwoods State Park, including Bull Creek-Dyerville Flat and the Avenue of the Giants Parkway; Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park; Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park; and Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, including Mill Creek. In partnership with the Sierra Club and the National Geographic Society, the League helped revive the idea of creating a national Redwood Park. Congress established Redwood National Park in 1968. The League also helped preserve land in Calaveras Big Trees State Park, Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, Navarro River Redwoods State Park, Sinkyone Wilderness State Park, along the Santa Cruz County Coast, and in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Save the Redwoods League continues to protect redwood forests from logging and pollution, provides gifts to establish parks and preserves, and has active scientific research and education programs.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Save the Redwoods League records document the organization’s work to preserve redwood trees, and its role in the development and protection of state and national parks in California. The bulk of the collection covers the tenures of League executive directors Newton B. Drury (1919-1940 and 1959-1978), Aubrey Drury (1920-1959), and John B. Dewitt (1965-1996). This includes the early years of the organization and its four key projects, preservation of: I. Humboldt Redwood State Park, including Bull Creek-Dyerville and Avenue of the Giants; II. Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park; III. Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park; and IV. Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, including Mill Creek.
Council and Councilor files for these years are robust. Records documenting the significant role the League played in the creation of the California State Park system and in the establishment of Redwood National Park are particularly comprehensive. Other notable topics are discussed in Series and Sub-series scope notes. Many people, places and things were important throughout the League’s history, so significant correspondence from the organization’s leadership can be found throughout the collection.
There are very few records related to the Executive Directors that followed John B. Dewitt, or from the late 1990s and early 21st Century more generally. There are also gaps regarding land acquisition because the League has currently retained most of its property files. Some records were damaged or destroyed in a 2001 fire.
Most of the photographs in the collection have been removed and cataloged separately under the call number BANC PIC 2006.030. However, photographs that are intrinsically related to the manuscript materials they were filed with have been kept in the collection to provide context for the researcher. These include portraits of Councilors and photographs accompanying land appraisals.
The League staff used several filing systems, categorizing documents using a numerical code and/or by recording the subject matter or key project number on them. They also made multiple copies of each document, because they fell into more than one category, were sent to different people, or served multiple functions. Consequently, there is great deal of overlap and some duplication in the collection, and researchers looking for materials on a certain topic or correspondence with a specific person may find records in more than one place. Chronological order is sometimes approximate because incoming and outgoing correspondence was often stapled together. A filing key through 1942 can be found in the Archival and Administrative Records to help with navigation. Original order was maintained whenever possible and original folder titles and pertinent League designations were retained when available, but folders were not always checked to verify that their contents matched the label.
The collection has been divided into eleven Series: Archival and Administrative Records; Financial Records; Executive Directors’ Records; Council and Board of Directors’ Records; John C. Merriam, Lawrence C. Merriam, and Merriam Family Papers; California State Park Legislation; Redwood National Park; Subject and Research Files; Agencies and Organizations; Publicity, Publications, and Circulation; and Maps.

Arrangement

Arranged into two sub-series, 3.1 Newton B. Drury and Aubrey Drury Papers; and 3.2 John B. Dewitt and Kate Anderton Papers

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of files compiled by and for League leaders Newton Bishop Drury, Aubrey Drury, John B. Dewitt, and Kate Anderton. The Drury brothers essentially functioned as a team, working together on the League’s behalf. Newton B. Drury was the League’s first Executive Director, serving from 1919-1940. His brother Aubrey was Administrative Secretary from approximately 1920-1940. Although his title did not change, Aubrey effectively assumed management of the League when Newton became Director of the National Park Service in 1940. Newton served in that capacity until 1951, when he became Chief of the California Division of Beaches and Parks. He resumed his role as Executive Director of the League when Aubrey died in 1959, and subsequently served as President from 1971-1975, and Chair of the Board until his death in 1978.
John B. Dewitt served as Assistant Secretary of the League from 1965-1971, and Secretary and Executive Director from 1971-1995 (he died in 1996). Bradlee S. Welton was Assistant Secretary from 1984-1989. Kate Anderton was legal counsel from 1995-1999, and Secretary and Executive Director from 1999-2006. Correspondence from the League’s Executive Directors, particularly the Drury brothers and John B. Dewitt, can also be found in the League's subject files. Please note that the leader of the League is variously referred to as the Executive Director and the Executive Secretary.
 

Sub-series 3.1 Newton B. and Aubrey Drury Papers 1916-1979

Physical Description: Carton 7, folders 17-35; Cartons 8-17; Carton 18, folders 1-37; Box 1, folders 1-3; Nitrate Negative Box 1

Scope and Content Note

This sub-series consists of biographical materials and tributes to both brothers; Board and Council records; conference materials; correspondence and memos; documents re: land acquisition and property transactions; materials related to the Drury brothers' advertising firm; ephemera; membership materials; publicity; newspaper clippings; notes; speeches and writings; and subject files. Newton B. Drury’s files also include correspondence related toin his role as the Secretary/Investigator for the California State Parks Committee and from his tenures as director of the National Park System and California State Parks. Aside from League business, the formation and maintenance of the California State Park System is a major topic of discussion. Correspondence about some subjects spans both Drury brothers’ tenures, and some was handled by their secretaries, Elizabeth O. Block (eob) and Grace Linden Johns (GL).

Newton B. Drury directed the legislative campaign. This series documents overwhelming support for the campaign and includes administrative and financial records; fundraising and publicity materials; newspaper clippings; and correspondence and memos. Other legislative issues documented here include drilling (Proposition 13), eminent domain, highways, taxation, and vehicle registration fees.

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of the League’s general files on people, places, things, and events. Many of these subjects were important throughout League history, and related correspondence from Newton B. Drury, Aubrey Drury and John Dewitt is filed here, so these files effectively double as correspondence files for the League leadership. Some folders were labeled Research Files, indicating they were used to generate League literature and publicity campaigns. There are a wide variety of other materials in the series, including administrative records, appraisals and property transactions, brochures, cruises, field notes, maps, memos, newspaper clippings, and publications. Topics of significance include Calaveras Big Trees State Park; Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park; the construction of freeways through the redwoods; timber cruiser Enoch Percy French; Grant Ranch; memorial groves; Humboldt Redwoods State Park and the acquisition of Bull Creek-Dyerville Flats; and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. Please note there is also some overlap with the Public Relations files.

Physical Description: Carton 135, folders 96-108; Cartons 136-137; Carton 138, folders 1-19

Arrangement

Divided into Membership and Circulation files.

Scope and Content Note

The League labeled membership and “circularization” (circulation) materials differently, so an attempt was made to keep them separate, but there is overlap between the two categories. Membership files contain incoming and outgoing correspondence and letters of acknowledgment; form letters; donor cards; responses from people who did not want to join the League; mailing and membership lists; and deceased member files. “Circularization” referred to the League’s mass mailing campaigns. In addition to sample letters, these files include a small amount of material related to the coordination and success of membership appeals, such as circulation reports and statistics; there are also inserts and incentives that the League refers to as “Collateral,” such as greeting cards, invitations, and postcards.
