Interesting Facts & Highlights

Yosemite

Named for Françios Emile Matthes, a USGS geologist who served for 51 years. He was a prolific writer with close to one hundred published works and 14 articles in the Sierra Club Bulletin. Raid Morgan, a YNP ranger made the formal request in 1949 stating, "Dr. Matthes was a very modest and unassuming man and would have been the last to suggest that anything be named in his honor. However, he was greatly pleased at the suggestion that this ridge bear his name, saying he knew no other unnamed feature in the Sierra which he would rather have chosen."
