The Kings River Parks Company was financed by the Yosemite National Park Company controlled by Harry Chandler and A. B. C. Dohrmann. They commenced operations in Sequoia at the beginning of the 1920 season. In Giant Forest they assumed control of the hotel, general store and pack train concessions, in General Grant National Park they took control of the General Grant National Park Hotel Company, and in Kings Canyon (then outside any park) they acquired the old Kanawyer's Camp at Copper Creek. 1924 was the last year of operation in Sequoia by the Yosemite National Park Company. During the 1925 season the Kings River Parks Company continued to operate under its old name, but the properties were leased. Hazen H. Hunkins, the new manager, was employed by Howard Hays. In 1926 Hays acquired a twenty-year contract for the Sequoia concession and organized the Sequoia and General Grant National Parks Company. Staples rusty, a very good copy. (#166727).
