    Introduction to Collection

    This collection represents my working papers during the periods of time leading up to the passage of the California Wilderness Act, 1984, and the Condor Range and Rivers Protection Act, 1992. It is indeed an honor to have my files included in the Bancroft Library's archive of environmental activists' documents.
    The study of strategies used in reaching environmental goals, the relationship of the individual activist to the Sierra Club, how government agencies carry out their legal mandates, and the study of the roles played by individual politicians, their aides, and environmentalists in the designation of official Wilderness are some areas of potential research using these materials. With this in mind, I am especially happy to donate these papers in hopes they will be helpful in augmenting the likelihood of success for future environmental activism. - Sally M. Reid.


    “This Collection is dedicated to Mary Ann Lockhart, who saw to it that the many cartons of papers and notes covering the years of fighting for the condor Range and rivers Protection Act were organized professionally before they were presented to the Bancroft Library. Without her, it just wouldn't have happened.”

    -Sally Millhauser Reid.
