Abstract: The collection documents the resource management activities in the park. Some of the material was originally created by programs that predated the Resources Management Division, but were integrated into the new division in 1984. With increasing program specialization, the records of single individual employees, such as resource management specialist Peter Sanchez, were divided up and became program office records. The records were then transferred to the archives periodically.
