John Carpenter


Specific areas of expertise are photography, postal history, art, hotels, camping, pioneers, souvenirs, literature and tourism. However, I would be happy to answer any questions pertaining to the history of the park 1850 - 1950.

Experience in the area

I have been collecting and researching Yosemite history for over 40 years. For many years I have been donating material to the Yosemite Museum helping to improve their holdings and enlarge the scope of their interests. Since 2008 I have had the privilege of partnering with the museum staff in presenting The Yosemite Story in comprehensive summer exhibitions. I maintain an extensive collection covering all disciplines and have the finest research library outside of the park. I consult for book, art and photo dealers worldwide.
