Inscription.  
Albright's contributions to the National Park Service can hardly be overstated. While working with the agency's first director, Stephen Mather, in the early years of the National Park Service, Horace Albright played a decisive role in guiding the agency. Upon Mather's departure Albright became the agency's second director.

President Jimmy Carter presented Horace Albright the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in 1980.
 
Erected by National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior.
