About the Author

James E. Cole, 1940
James E. Cole was was born September 10, 1902 in Canada. He was a student of the 1933 School of Field Natural History in Yosemite, and was appointed a seasonal Ranger-Naturalist the following two summers. He was Assistant Park Naturalist in Yosemite National Park during 1935-1940. According to Shirley Sargent’s Protecting Paradise, Cole “lived across the street from the [Yosemite] elementary school, making it easy for his daughters, Joyce and Phyllis, to sleep late.”

Cole transferred to Joshua Tree National Monument in 1940 to become its first superintendent. He served until 1942 and again served from 1944 to 1947 as Custodian. Cole did research on spotted bats in California and Utah. By 1948 he was a biologist at Wind Cave National Monument, where he studied prairie dog towns and bison. Cole spent parts of three winters on Isle Royle National Park studying wolves. He found the last coyote track on the island in 1957. In 1962 and 1963 Cole was Project Manager at Point Reyes National Seashore. He died June 3, 1981 in San Rafael, California.
