Stamps, Parks, and a President: FDR at Great Smoky Mountains National Park

In addition to supporting the stamp program, President Roosevelt urged the public to visit national parks, and he brought many additional sites into the system. Speaking at the dedication of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in September 1940, he observed that the conservation of its trees was meant "for the happiness of the American people."
