Records generated within the organizational divisions of Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park concerning Park management, planning and development.
By the 1930s, the Parks' superintendent was beginning to grapple with the complexities of park resource management. Under John R. White, Sequoia was one of the first parks to address the cumulative effect of visitation and development on the ecosystems the Parks were meant to protect. Following the publication of the Leopold Report in 1963, Park staff began to include larger numbers of ecologists, biologists, and botanists, and a wide range of research projects were undertaken. In 1976, the Division of Natural Resources Management was established out of the consolidation of work functions drawn from throughout the Parks' administration.
