preservation movement (national park idea)
One essay: either focusing on the preservation movement (national park idea) or utilitarian conservation (national forest idea). Both are on exam. You get your choice.
Preservation: central character: Muir (others important too)
Utilitarian conservation: central character: Pinchot (ditto)
Either essay should begin with an overview of how the resource-intensive ways of Western Civilization came to bear on what became the United States, and led to preservation or utilitarian conservation movements.
