Caption: John Burroughs (right) and John Muir, on Burroughs' 75th birthday. John Muir (1838-1914) was a Scottish-born American naturalist, traveller, writer and geologist who spent years studying the geology and natural history of the Yosemite Valley, California. He proposed a theory that glaciers had sculpted the valley, and persuaded President Roosevelt to support the protection of Yosemite in a National Park. John Burroughs (1837–1921) was an American naturalist and essayist who was an important figure in the evolution of the US conservation movement. Photographed on 3 April 1912.
