Inscription.  In 1913, Hallie Daggett accepted the job at the Eddy Gulch Lookout, entering history books as the Forest Service’s first woman lookout (1913-1927). At a time when men dominated the workplace, this act took special courage, self-confidence, and a true love for her country. Those qualities opened the door for other women to follow. One in particular was Nancy Culbertson. From 1960-1991, Nancy sat atop this mountain with the same devotion and selflessness as did Hallie. This plaque is placed in honor of Hallie Daggett and Nancy Culbertson. They dedicated their lives to the protection and preservation of one of America’s great natural treasures, the Klamath National Forest.
