A collection of 112 field surveyor notebooks and five indexes containing field survey notations for park construction projects.
Sequoia National Park, founded in 1890, was the second national park to be established by the federal government. General Grant National Park, the third national park, was created later that same year. In 1926, Congress expanded the boundaries of Sequoia National Park east to Mount Whitney to encompass both the Kaweah and Kern watersheds for a total park area of 604 square miles.
