Yosemite against corporation greed; shall half of Yosemite national park be destroyed by San Francisco? A thesis against it

by Isaac Reichelderfer Branson

Publication Information: 30 p.

Annotation: Review of President Garfield's decision by the ex-Secretary of the Interior. A passionate call to arms in defense of preserving the Hetch Hetchy Valley from the attempt of the city of San Francisco to dam it for a reservoir for the city. Branson was from the Mid-West: his partisanship shows how deeply the cause was felt across the country. This is not a reasoned or literary effort, but a populist outpouring, published by Branson himself. Contains a Notice to the Press on the inside front cover, urging the press to take up the fight.
