C. Summary

There are 16 archival boxes, a half-archival box, an expanding folder, 1 record box, and 3 volumes of official history and explanation. It has been divided into 6 series.

The next series, III - concerns Origins. Within it, materials regarding the "Campfire Legend" occupy one archival box as do those put out by the War Department. Special Periods within NPS History make up Series IV. NPS Activities during World War II are in 1 archival box and an expanding folder and 1 archival box hold material on NPS Major Programs and Concerns 1962-, along with other NPS summaries. Series V - Publications has a half-archival box of the "Quotes" pamphlets plus a full box of policy publications. Much of the "official" history material has been labeled "Policy and Philosophy", Series VI. In 1986, this consisted of 6 chronological boxes - pre-1947, 1947-59, 1960-67, 1968-70, 1971-80, and 1981-current. This voluminous material includes articles on all aspects of parks, pamphlets and leaflets, memos, book reviews, press releases - almost any written material that shows how people within and outside of the Park Service think about their parks.

D. Related materials

The Harpers Ferry Center Library contains copies of probably all the accounts of NPS history published since the Service' inception.

The NPS Courier and other newsletters from 1919 to the present constitute a great historical resource. In the absence of other resources, an overview history could be written from these periodicals. They are also important for philosophy and to get a glimpse of National Park Service culture and esprit-de-corps.

The Oral Histories Collection (RG 59) contains personal narratives by past employees and friends of NPS which give a special flavor to NPS history. Personal papers in the NPSHC, like the Ronald F. Lee Papers (RG 1) also contain large amounts of material on the history and culture of the NPS. The badges, uniforms, and other artifacts in the museum collection give a feel for the evolution of the National Park Service. The vast holdings of the NPS Historic Photograph Collection also add flavor to the history.
