Identifier: APFN


In 1977, Peggy Nelson joined the National Park Service's Southeastern Center in Tallahassee, Florida, as a seasonal archaeologist while attending Memphis State University (MSU). While enrolled in graduate studies in landscape architecture at the University of Georgia, she began work for the NPS Southeast Region in Atlanta to further develop a cultural landscape management approach to NPS sites. In 1992 the NPS Southwest Region in Santa Fe, NM, offered her a position as a historic landscape architect, and she worked for the NPS in Hawaii as a Chief of Resources from 1998-2001, and then moved to the Fort Smith National Historic Park in Arkansas until 2005, when she returned to the NPS Regional Office in Santa Fe as a Historic Landscape Architect. She retired from the NPS in 2007. This collection consists of drawings, maps, photographs, publications, and reports related to Nelson's NPS career.
