A visionary’s lens on wildlife and parks revealed: George Meléndez Wright and the National Park Service’s Wildlife Division photographs


The National Park Service (NPS) History Collection has released over 4,600 images from the NPS Wildlife Division photo file for research access. Digitized through the generosity of the George Meléndez Wright family in honor of his legacy, the images date primarily from the late 1920s to the early 1950s and document a wide range of species, wildlife management issues, historic structures, and other subjects, primarily in the national and state parks. These Wildlife Division images are an invaluable resource for the NPS; other federal, state, and tribal land managers; academics and other researchers; and the general public.
