Yellowstone was established as a public park in 1872, however didn’t really get any type of protection until the military stepped in as a temporary measure. Eventually as the the popularity and use of the public made parks increased as more sprang up, the need for an organization more specific to the maintenance and protection came and with the park ranger in 1905. It wasn’t until 1916 when Woodrow Wilson signed the National Park Organic Act that the rangers were truly unified with the national parks under one centralized government agency.
