Giant Sequoia Named for McKinley


From The San Francisco Call.

     Secretary J. J. Lerman of the Yosemite Valley Commission, having been sent by the Commissioners to select a tree in the Mariposa Big Tree Grove to be named “William McKinley,” visited the big trees on Monday, Oct. 21. Many trees were looked at. A fine sequoia that stands between “Washington” and “Lincoln” was selected as the tree which will be known as “William McKinley.” It is estimated to be 3,000 years old.
