Under contract with the National Park Service to provide a historical handbook
for a planned park in the Big Bend, University of Texas historian and soon-to-be
director of the Texas State Historical Association Walter Prescott Webb arranged
a float trip through Santa Elena Canyon in 1937. After they portaged their boats
