    Curtis writes Mills on behalf of Professor Meany, President of the Mountaineers, to tell him about the Chamber of Commerce report regarding the establishment of an Olympic National Park. Curtis writes that his negotiations for the boundaries of the park (which were smaller than those of the National Monument) were very unpopular among the Mountaineers who "refused to endorse by action and since that time have made a determined effort to have a National Park established with the same boundaries as the National Monument. As this will include large areas that have no special interest for a National Park purposes they should fail. I personally believe that the only result of this work has been and will continue to be that we will get no park at all.". less
