National Park Service History Collection RG 13


A. Provenance

Almost all of this material came from or through Cornelius Heine who served in the National Parks Centennial Office. Most of it is Accession HFCA-0174 and HFCA-0175. Jean Henderer's files also came to us through Heine as Accession HFCA-0292. A small part of the material came as Accession HFCA-0418. The material was generated and collected by the National Parks Centennial Office during the course of its mission focusing on the Centennial Year 1972. Almost all of the memorabilia was produced on contract as was some of the writing. The centennial celebration was Servicewide, but prominence was given to Yellowstone. This fact is reflected in the records and memorabilia. The informational material, memorabilia, and events material were for produced for the public, but the records were internal to the office.

B. History

The world's first national park, Yellowstone was established on March 1, 1872. It was decided to celebrate the centennial of Yellowstone nationwide and a National Parks Centennial Commission was established by Public Law 91-332, signed by President Nixon on July 10, 1970, to coordinate the celebration.

Membership of the Commission included:

Edmund B. Thornton of Illinois, Chairman

Senator Alan Bible of Nevada

Senator Henry M. Jackson of Washington

Senator Paul J. Fannin of Arizona

Senator Clifford P. Hansen of Wyoming

Representative John Melcher of Montana

Representative John P. Saylor of Pennsylvania

Representative Joe Skubiz of Kansas

Elmer L. Anderson of Minnesota

Henry P. Hoffstat of Pennsylvania

W. W. Keeler of Oklahoma

Mrs. Frank Y. Larkin of Connecticut

Richard P. Mellon of Pennsylvania

Rogers C. B. Morton, Sec. of the Interior (represented by Laurence S. Rockefeller

George B. Hartzog, Jr., Executive Director and Director of the National Park Service

Lawrence W. Lane, Jr., Consultant of California.

Many members of the National Park Service Washington Office staff also worked with the National Parks Centennial Commission. Chief among these was Cornelius Heine who served as staff assistant, National Parks Centennial. Members of the Office of Information/Public Affairs as well as the Office of Cooperative Activities under Jean Henderer, also worked closely with Heine and the Commission. Drawing on these people, the National Park Service set up a separate office for the Centennial, which functioned from 1970 to 1974. Heine sent the records to the National Park Service History Collection at Harpers Ferry (then the "NPS Archives") when the Centennial Office ended its operations.

The Commission sponsored many events throughout the country and year, culminating in the Second World Conference on National Parks held in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, September 18 to 27, 1972. Each area of the National Park Service also sponsored special events during the Centennial Year. Several books, movies, television shows, memorabilia, etc., were also produced in connection with the Centennial. The final report of the National Parks Centennial Commission was published in book form as Preserving a Heritage.

C. Summary

There are slides, books and notebooks, 12 archive boxes, 12 record boxes, and a special box of material pertaining to the National Parks Centennial. It has been organized into 6 series with subseries.

Series I - "Personal Centennial Files" contains one archive box of Howard Baker's files, two record boxes and an archive box of Henderer's Files, and a record box of Heine's Files.

Series II - "National Parks Centennial Commission" has been subdivided into Meetings, Participants, Notebooks, Reports, and Commission Miscellaneous. This material consists of two expanding folders, two archive boxes, and a record box as well as books.

D. Dispersal

Most of the memorabilia is now part of the museum collection. The tapes and movies are part of the audiovisual collection. Some books were catalogued for the Harpers Ferry Center Library. Most of the Second World Conference material has been inventoried separately (see Record Group 7 "The World Conferences Collection). Some of the material has been disposed of. Some of the ephemera has been put with other categories and in other boxes. Some material is also in the NPS Historic Photograph Collection. Non-Centennial material in the accessions has been separated from Centennial material and placed in appropriate categories. Some oral history tapes pertain to the Centennial. A slide set (script and 80 slides) from Accession HFCA-0418 is among the material in the photo collection.
