R. Bryce Workman. The first uniforms to grace the national park (NP) system were worn by soldiers, who started to protect Yellowstone Park in 1886. The Army took Sequoia & Yosemite NP under their wing in 1890. When the parks & forest reserves were separated in 1905 & the latter were given uniforms, the civilian “scouts” or park rangers gave serious thought to their own identity. The Interior Dept. began to develop a uniform for the NP rangers, which changed over the years & in various parks. This is the story of the struggle by these early rangers as they tried to convince the bureaucracy to let them establish their own identity. Numerous photos & drawings.
