About the Crater Lake NP Oral History Series

 

Interviewer : John Morrison, Crater Lake National Park Historian

Interview Location and Date: Oregon, August 4, 1987

Transcription: Transcribed by Cheryl Ryan, September 1997

Biographical Summary (from the interview introduction)

Wife of park ranger W.T. "Jack" Frost who served at Crater Lake National Park from 1936 to 1943.

My predecessor, John Morrison, conducted a total of seven interviews during the four months he served as park historian in 1987. Hazel Frost was among the former park employees or residents he interviewed, but a backlog of tapes and no funds for transcription meant that processing of the interview did not take place until a decade later. Unfortunately Mrs. Frost died during that time, so there was no way to release the edited transcription. Her son Charles, however, has been kind enough to extend us the courtesy of a release almost six years after Cheryl Ryan prepared the final draft.

Materials Associated with this interview on file at the Dick Brown library at Crater Lake National Park's Steel Visitor Center

Taped interview; Some related information is in another interview conducted by Morrison on the same day in 1987 with O. W. Foiles.
