Biographical Summary (from the interview introduction)

Wendell Wood. Frequent visitor since 1978 and representative of local environmental group (Oregon Natural Resources Council). It might appear to some people that Wendell Wood and the Oregon Natural Resources Council (ONRC) occupy a peripheral position in regard to the history of Crater Lake National Park. The park, however, does not exist in an environmental or political vacuum. Conservation groups such as ONRC have played an important role in 20th century Oregon history, of which Crater Lake National Park is a part. Wendell Wood is presently the South Central Field Representative for ONRC, a position which the organization created to bring one of the most prominent environmentalists in Oregon to the Klamath Basin.
