The Peter Black Collection brings together articles and documents reflecting the environmental and political issues surrounding
Redwood National Park's creation (1968) and expansion (1978)in Humboldt and Del Norte counties, California.
Dr. Peter Black became involved with the establishment of Redwood National Park while he was an Assistant Professor of Forestry
at Humboldt State University (then Humboldt State College) from 1961-1965. Under contract with the National Park Service
Dr. Black wrote "Climate, Soils, and Hydrology of the Redwood Region". His involvement with the park continued until its
expansion in 1978.
