David and Jennie Curry

1860-1917, 1861-1948  
  • Founders of the tourist facilities that became the Curry Company. Camp Curry started in 1899, long after Muir's major time spent in Yosemite.
  • The Curry Company operated the concessions within the Yosemite National Park from 1899 to 1966, including Camp Curry, Wawona and Ahwahnee hotels (now historical landmarks), the Lodge, transportation, high sierra camps, and all other commercial operations.
  • John Muir would be proud of a contemporary descendant of the Curry's, David Curry, of Los Angeles, California, who serves on the Advisory Committee for the advocacy group Restore Hetch Hetchy.
