Excerpt from Rock Creek Park, an Administrative History The late Jim Redmond had a deep appreciation for the park he super intended. He valued its importance as a natural oasis in the nation's capital, and he also valued its historical significance. Looking forward to its centennial in 1990, he spoke to me several times about nominating Rock Creek Park to the National Register of Historic Places. In 1983, shortly before Jim's death, Regional Director Jack Fish of the National Park Service's National Capital Region asked if I could do an administrative history of the park. The history was needed to provide background for a park general management plan. It could also serve as documentation for a National Register nomination, if responsible managers and staff in the park and regional office wished to pursue that course.
