NATIONAL PARK SERVICE HISTORY
Directors'/Superintendents' Annual Reports

In 1872 Nathaniel Pitt Langford, the Superintendent of the Yellowstone National Park, sent the first annual report to the Secretary of the Interior concerning the condition of Yellowstone National Park. Since that time annual reports have given park superintendents the opportunity to summarize and report important events, trends, problems and opportunities in their parks. The following links provide a sample of some some of these early annual reports.
