Women Wearing the 1960 Badge

Everglades National Park

In the 1950s and 1960s women could wear badges as specified for men. Photographs show that many did, but some did not. This could reflect superintendent preferences, badge availability, personal choice, or that badges for park guides or other positions had been created.
