The Newton Bishop Drury papers document his leadership of, and conservation issues relevant to, the Save the Redwoods League,
the California state park system, and the National Park Service. There are also some materials related to Drury's alma mater,
the University of California, Berkeley, and his graduating class of 1912.
Newton Bishop Drury was born in San Francisco in 1889 to prominent newspaperman and politician Wells Drury and his wife,
Elvira Lorraine Bishop. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1912 and served in the U.S. Army Balloon
Corps during World War I. The destruction he witnessed during the war inspired him to become a staunch conservationist. Drury
married Elizabeth Frances Shilling in 1918; the couple had two children.
