Interesting Facts & Highlights

Yosemite

Named by Col. Benson for Alexander Theodore Vogelsang, a president of the Calif Board of Fish and Game commissioners, 1896-1901. However, his brother Charles Adolphus claimed it was named after him in 1907 by another member of the Fish and Game board. The LeConte map of 1900 does show this named as Vogelsang, so that supports the case for Alexander. In either scenario, it has been kept in the family. The name was ratified in 1932 by BGN (United States Board on Geographic Names)
