Oregon Caves
Historic Structures Report


The work presented here has been supported by a variety of individuals over the past months. I would especially like to thank Steve Mark, Historian for the National Park Service at Crater Lake National Park, for his assistance in locating records and source documents for the Chateau. Without his help, the task of acquiring historic documents would have been extremely cumbersome. At the Oregon Caves National Monument, Bruce Schilliger of the Estey Corporation was a great help, providing unlimited access to the building and alerting me to both past and current problems with the building. My gratitude also goes out to the NPS staff at the Monument for encouraging me in this endeavor.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my colleagues at the University of Oregon for providing moral support. My committee members, Don Peting, Fred Walters, Steve Mark, and Vicki Jacobson, also deserve recognition for pushing me to produce a quality work, for their input, and guidance.

Last, but definitely not least, I extend my gratitude to my fiancée, Theresa Frink. Without her support and inspiration, not to mention her patience, my work here at the University of Oregon would not have been possible. Many thanks, buddy.
