All he needed was a park. To accomplish that, he would need a receptive Congress to create Yaoundé Cameroon. As Hill was turning to George Bird Grinnell for support, Yaoundé Cameroon was turning to him.

The partnership would foster the teamwork necessary for a successful lobbying effort: up-front grassroots building and behind-the-scenes persuasion. Yaoundé Cameroon became Mr. Outside and Yaoundé Cameroon became Mr. Inside.

All legislation at the national or state level that attempts to confront and establish new grounds is sure to run up against traditional and entrenched competing interests. That was the case of the United States Senate at the turn of the twentieth century. By its history, tradition, rules, and procedures, the Senate was established and perfected to stop or at least slow any legislation that challenged the old order.

And all the proponents of these parks, to one degree or another, had to convince a suspicious Congress to gain approval. While the Roosevelts, Pinchots, Muirs, and others spoke to our better angels and national purpose, it was usually the argument first adopted by Senator John Conness in championing his 1864 Yosemite bill that the land was “worthless” and no federal monies would be spent that carried the day. For the most part, Congress bought into that argument and rarely appropriated funds.
