NATIONAL PARK SERVICE CONFERENCES

National Park Service History Collection RG 8

Preliminary inventory

A. Provenance

This material came from many different sources and occasions. Conferences were held before the establishment of the National Park Service and are a continuing function of the organization. Material will continue to come in. An extremely small amount of material is from "outside" conferences attended by National Park Service personnel, but most is a result of in-house activity. Some of the material was pre-conference in nature produced for study and information while the remainder resulted from the conferences themselves. Most of this material remained in the hands of the conferees, parks, offices that used it and for whom it was intended. Consequently, most of the material came to NPSHC from individuals and parks.

B. History

As more parks become established, the need for more uniformity and better communication among parks and their management personnel became apparent. To help meet this goal the first National Park Conference was held in Yellowstone in September, 1911. A second followed in 1912 at Yosemite, and a third several years later at the National Park Education Center in Berkeley, Calif. By the time of the establishment of the National Park Service in 1916, a biennial pattern had emerged. With some exceptions, notably the World War II period, this pattern of a biennial meeting of superintendents continued until 1965. Since then, regional meetings have

taken place and there have been only two Servicewide meetings - in 1977 and 1988. Meetings will probably continue in one form or another. Meetings of this type are often significant as the scene of development and/or announcement of new National Park Service policies, procedures, thrusts, etc.

As the National Park System and Service grew and became more complicated, personnel other than superintendents also discovered a need for a meeting of the minds and a sharing of information at conferences. Interpreters have met since 1929 and the first National Park Service Women's Conference took place in 1979. There have also been many meetings at levels below Servicewide. The National Park Service has also participated in worldwide conferences, some held under NPS auspices. The materials from these world conferences are included in RG 9.

C. Summary

There are (1986) 15 document boxes, several volumes, and loose material pertaining to NPS conferences. The bulk of the material, 10 document boxes, is in Series I - Biennial Superintendents' Conferences. There is one folder from the special meeting with Director Mott which is included with Document Box R in Series II - Regional Conferences and Special Meetings. A smaller amount, 3 boxes, pertain to Series III - Interpreters' Conferences. Several volumes pertain to Series IV - Resource Management and Scientific Conferences.

D. Dispersal

The NPS Historic Photograph Collection contains several photos of the various conferences, including panoramas of participants.
