"Harriet Weaver was the first woman ranger for what is now the California Department of Parks and Recreation. She was assigned to Big Basin Redwoods Park in Santa Cruz County in the 1930's. She was prohibited from becoming a full time ranger as the job was thought to be more suitable for men. Despite the barriers she is credited as the first woman to break the gender barrier and pave the way for women who finally entered full time service in the 1970's".-findagrave.com.
