North Cascades Conservation Council Newsletters, 1957-68

I reviewed all newsletters from August 1957 through establishment of the North Cascades National Park in 1968. (These are available, with an index from April 1960 through January 1968, at UWSpecColl.) Later issues likely include much about the 1976 Alpine Lakes Wilderness Act, the 1984 Washington Wilderness Act, and other issues. I decided to stop at 1968 for now. If the Notes column says "reference," then the contents may be useful for future reference, but I haven't made detailed notes on them for now. The ID column below has links to review notes.
