Catalogue Note

Skis, Yosemite comes originally from the Estate of Don Tresidder, who was president of the Yosemite Park & Curry Company from 1924 until his death in 1948.  Tresidder, an avid skier, is responsible for introducing a winter sports program at Yosemite National Park and commissioned Adams in 1929 and 1930 to produce images relating to the sport.
