Chart 2: 07-01-1919

This chart shows the creation of two new functions; Engineering and Landscape Engineering as field entities. Engineering was located in Portland, Oregon, where it remained until 1926, and Landscape Engineering which was apparently first located in Yosemite National Park, and then moved to Los Angeles, California, in 1923. The number of areas administered had increased to 44 by the end of 1919.
