Smith Brothers' Chronological History of Crater Lake National Park



<< 1898   1900   1901 >>

February 16

William Gladstone Steel marries Lydia Hatch in Everett, Washington, at age 46.


Charles Van Zilc of North Bend, Oregon works three summers as a “forest ranger” at Crater Lake”. Charles was involved with the early Park boundary survey. He also planted fish in the Lake.

No fish were caught from the Lake for 12 years following Steel’s planting. Finally a few fish were taken, one of which was fully 30 inches long. Trout then began to be taken in ever increasing numbers. (1 - 10 pounds)
