Protecting and Preserving All Life -- By Extending Human Vision

Or, Covering-Up the Cover-Up. 

Action was required to disappear the criminal activities of Stephen Mather and Horace Albright. They needed to reframe history and eliminate early film-maker, inventor, good friend of John Muir, and determined Preservationist, Arthur C. Pillsbury from history.  

Arthur C. Pillsbury was the equivilent for his time of the leading edge in high-tech.  He majored in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University and his innovations and inventions, while a student, included the first motorcycle built in California, the first specimen slicer for a microscope, and the first circuit panorama camera.  He also worked for the Southern Pacific as a photographer, the US Geological Service as a surveyor, and was well informed on geological and physiological  issues.  His parents and brother were all medical doctors.  

He carried out a photographic survey of not only Yosemite but all National Parks and other wilderness areas regularly.  

In 1892 he purchased his first movie camera.  The work he chose to do was to record nature, showing nature films which presented the glories of nature  to awaken an empathic relationship between the natural world and people.  Thereafter, he showed his films, a steadily growing number of these, changing and extending their scope, every year.  These films were shown to local garden clubs and as short features in movie theaters.  They were licensed for foreign distribution by Pathe, Universal and Paramount in 1919.  

The first nature film.  Shown in Yosemite in 1909 and thereafter regularly, eventually in the theater he built at the Pillsbury Studio in New Village, which held 375 people.  Films included lapse-time for flowers and microscopic motion pictures of such incredible images as cells dividing, this in 1925.
