Yosemite

Named after a charter member of the Sierra Club, Joseph Nisbet LeConte was a professor of engineering mechanics at UC Berkley. USGS designated the name in 1911, however it was not until the 1956 publication of the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir 15' quad that it appeared in print. Joseph was a prolific early explorer of the Sierra Nevada, wrote about his travels, was an expert photographer and authored a number of important maps of the area.
