Patterson’s State Park Commission (which met only once, in 1929). His grand nephew, Brian Booth, became first chairman of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission created by legislative act in 1989. Booth Wayside was developed during the Depression era with assistance of Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees.
