About the Crater Lake NP Oral History Series

 

Interviewer and Date: Stephen R. Mark, Crater Lake National Park Historian, September 1, 1992.

Interview Location: Diamond Lake, Oregon, October 31, 1991

Transcription: Transcribed by Chris Prout, July 1997

Biographical Summary (from the interview introduction)

Seasonal naturalist 1958 to 1970. I first heard of Ted Arthur in September 1988, during an interview with Dick and Ann Brown, but lacked the opportunity to meet him until the summer of 1992. At that point he was serving as an interpreter on the Diamond Lake Ranger District. His final season at Crater Lake had been more than 20 years before, but Mr. Arthur filled the naturalist role so easily that it hardly seemed possible that so much time had elapsed since the last time he worked in the vicinity of Mount Mazama.
