To the reader:

Larry Smith put me in touch with Marvin Nelson, who retired in 1969 after 16 years as the park’s administrative officer. In this capacity Mr. Nelson served through a total of eight superintendents during his time in the Medford office and at Crater Lake. He saw a number of changes to park operations, including major ones that affected how administrative services were rendered.

The following transcription is from an interview conducted one afternoon at his residence in Medford. It is relatively short, though our correspondence provides some additional information and can be found in the park’s history files.
