Extractions: Franklin Lane was born on July 15, 1864, near Charlottestown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, and died May 18,1921, in Rochester, Minnesota, at the age of 56. His family moved to northern California by the 1870s, and Lane attended school in Oakland and San Francisco. He worked as a newspaper reporter and became a lawyer. As a California Democrat in a Republican era, he lost a close race for governor in 1902; lost the U.S. senatorial confirmation in 1903; and lost the San Francisco mayoralty campaign in 1903. Though his "utilitarian" philosophy regarding natural resources (especially water storage and use) was at times fanatical, his ultimate intentions were never malicious. In Park Service lore, he will be remembered chiefly for three things: being a primary advocate for Yosemite's Hetch Hetchy Dam: coaxing Stephen T. Mather to come to Washington to organize and run what would become the NPS; and being the secretary of the interior under whose administration the National Park Service was penned into existence. As secretary of the interior, Lane visited many park areas between 1914 and 1918. He toured pre-national park Acadia (Sieur de Monts National Monument) with its "foundling father" George B. Dorr and struck up an immediate friendship with him. His fondness for Dorr and his excitement over the park clinched the area's national park designation. Though Mather and Albright sharply protested some of Lane's resource management ideas, the secretary nearly always stood behind his chiefs, giving strength to a far-flung, under staffed, infant agency operating on an inadequate budget.

Extractions: Lane, Franklin Knight 1864-1921, U.S. Secretary of the Interior (1913-20), b. near Charlottetown, P.E.I., Canada. Raised in California, he later studied law and practiced in San Francisco, where he entered Democratic politics and served as city and county attorney. His unsuccessful campaigns for governor of California (1902) and mayor of San Francisco (1903) won national attention, and in 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt appointed him to the Interstate Commerce Commission, on which he sat until 1913, serving briefly as chairman in 1913. As Secretary of the Interior under President Wilson, he was a conservationist. He sought to increase the independence of the Native Americans. He promoted self-government in Alaska and sponsored the Alaska RR from Seward to Fairbanks to tap the interior. See his letters (ed. by his wife, Anne W. Lane, and L. H. Wall, 1922).
Extractions: Franklin Knight Lane epitomized the reform impulse that pervaded the American experience during the late 1880s and continued through the early 1900s. Political reformer, labor activist, municipal legal advocate, political party leader, public administrator, statesman, humanitarian, and conservationist describe Lanes notable public life and many achievements. A Canadian by birth, Lanes career catapulted him to the pinnacle of American political power as a trusted presidential advisor, federal regulator, cabinet official and leading national voice for progressive reform and good government. His life was a testimony to dedication to public purpose, patriotism, and the democratic ideals of equality and opportunity. Lane was born in a ministers home near Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, on July 15, 1864. His parents, Christopher and Carolina, were Presbyterian prohibitionists of Scotch-Irish heritage. His father, at the time of Franklins birth, was a Presbyterian minister who suffered from recurrent attacks of bronchitis which weakened his preachers voice. Reverend Lanes bad health caused him to abandon the ministry for a career in dentistry. To escape the rigor of the harsh Canadian climate, Franklins father moved the family to California in 1871, settling in Napa. In 1876, the Lanes moved to Oakland, an area that offered greater professional opportunity for a dentist and better schooling for the children. Franklin enter Oakland High School where he impressed his teachers as bright, confident, and gregarious, traits that won him the honor of serving as class valedictorian in 1880.
