Dave Van de Mark photograph collection, 1964-2006, bulk 1964-1978

The Dave Van de Mark Photograph Collection is a visual documentation of many areas that became Redwood National Park in 1968, and many of the areas that were included in the Park Expansion in 1978. The lower Redwood Creek watershed is the focus of this collection. The pre and post logging conditions are explicitly shown in these images. Within the collection there are some photographs of the surrounding areas in Humboldt and Del Norte counties which put the core part of the collection in a broader geographic context. Mr. Van de Mark's purpose was to generate support for creating the park and later, with even more determination, to heighten public awareness for the need to expand the park. Nearly all of the photos were taken by Dave Van de Mark. The collection provides documentation of the disturbed landscapes whose rehabilitation was authorized by Congress in the Redwood National Park Expansion Act (PL 95-250). Additionally, there are three taped interviews with Mr. Van de Mark; one in 1999 and two in 2006. Transcripts for the 2006 interviews are included in this collection.
