Galen Clark
Birth: 1814
Death: 1910

National Park Ranger. When Yosemite first became a National Park, there was no National Park Service, thus the US Army was placed in change. Galen Clark was the first civilian ranger of Yosemite. Told as a young man that he would die of tuberculosis, he moved to Yosemite, and lived to be 96. He is buried in the Yosemite Cemetary, west of the visitor's center in Yosemite Valley. (bio by: Alan Lopez)
