Albany, 1902. Very good condition. It was not until 1894 that the Adirondack Park finally received real protection as an area which would remain "forever wild", following many years of work by Verplanck Colvin, who traveled the area for 3 decades, supervising the state survey and using his annual reports to the New York legislature to push for the creation of an Adirondack Forest Preserve. On these maps the blue line indicates the proposed boundary of the Adirondack Park. Timothy L. Woodruff is listed as President; also listed are DeWitt C. Middleton and Charles H.
