Our scenic domain can and will be made as readily accessible to all of our citizens . . . and much has recently been done to effect this. --Superintendent of National Parks Robert B. Marshall, 1916 I feel that the national parks have fully qualified for an important place among the agencies which have kept this Nation fit for war, and I look forward with confidence to their realization, after the coming of peace, of a broad and important destiny. --Director of the National Park Service Stephen T.
