The superintendent of Grand Teton National Park met with a group of Jackson Hole businessmen to discuss ways to provide written educational materials to the visitors of Grand Teton National Park. At that meeting, Bruce Porter, the local druggist, donated $50.00 to begin the purchase of publications. The board selected an advisory committee consisting of, among others, Dr. Fritiof Fryxell, S. N. Leek; Harrison R. Crandall, and Olaus J. Murie.
