Papers of Ralph H. Cameron by Ralph H Cameron ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The bulk of the collection consists of correspondence. Among the most prominent subjects is Cameron's business activity at the Grand Canyon, including the Bright Angel Trail and the Cameron Hotel and Camps, and the conflicts that his interests triggered with the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad (ATSF), the Santa Fe Land Improvement Company, the Fred Harvey Company, the Hotel El Tovar, the United States Department of Interior, and the United States Forest Service. There is some discussion of travel and tourism to the Grand Canyon, including discussions by Cameron's agents of competing with the ATSF and Fred Harvey Company over visitors, but the bulk of the Grand Canyon-related materials deal with Cameron's tenuous land and mining claims and water rights in the canyon region. Cameron had many partners, agents, and competitors in his endeavors, and the collection reveals Cameron's struggles to have his land and mining claims recognized by the United States Forest Service, and his efforts to prevent the designation of the Grand Canyon as a National Park. Prominent individuals represented in the collection include attorneys E.M. Doe, T.E. Pollock, and Gifford Pinchot
