The Salida Record, June 13, 1919:
Among the 100,000 or more of America’s citizens who expect to spend their vacation in the Estes-Rocky Mountain National Park this year are numbered some of her most noted literary men.
Chief of those who have so far expressed their intentions of visiting Estes for more or less lengthy periods are Irvis S. Cobb, humorist; Karl Harriman, editor of the Red Book magazine; Robert W. Servis, Jack Lait and Opie Read.
These have made reservations at the Big Thompson hotel, operated by Clem C. Yore, an old newspaper man. Walt Mason, the prose-poet, and William Allen White, newspaperman and novelist, each have summer homes in the park and are expected to spend their summers there with their families.
