(so much for Prohibition)
Carl Parcher Russell, historian, ecologist, and administrator, was born January 18, 1894 in Fall River, Wisconsin. He joined the National Park Service (NPS) in 1923 as a Naturalist in Yosemite National Park. In 1931 he received a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Michigan. He served as an officer for the NPS for 34 years, from 1923 to his retirement in 1957. He specialized in frontier history, studying its material culture in minute detail, and documented pioneer life for the NPS and others.

Dr. Russell served in several regional positions in the NPS, including NPS Chief Naturalist, regional director, and Yosemite National Park Superintendent. Dr. Russell retired from the park service in 1957 and died June 19, 1967. Besides several editions of One Hundred Years in Yosemite, he wrote Guns on the Early Frontiers in 1957, and, published posthumously, Firearms, Traps and Tools of the Mountain Men.

For more information see the WSU Libraries’ biographical sketch. WSU Special Collections is the depository for his papers. More Russell papers are in the Bancroft Library. See also John Bingaman’s biographical sketch in Chapter 23 of Guardians of the Yosemite (1961)
