1916 logo

The year 1916 is special to the National Park Service as the year Congress passed the National Park Service’s Organic Act establishing a new federal agency charged with the care and management of the units of the National Park System. In the latter part of the 20th century, the “1916 Society” was introduced when National Park Service employees and/or alumni formally gathered annually to commemorate the agency’s Founders Day, August 25, 1916.

Purpose and Use


The “1916 Society” promotes and supports cultural heritage and identity of the National Park Service. Pursuant to this the E&AA intends for the “1916 Society” to further its purpose and mission in support of the National Park Service. The 1916 Society recognizes association members, NPS employees and friends who actively support and promote fundraising programs and initiatives of the National Park Service Employees and Alumni Association Trust Fund such as the George B. Hartzog Jr. Education Loan Program and the Trust Fund’s disaster relief initiatives. A special 1916 Society logo is being developed for use in concert with the E&AA logo for the benefit of the association and its membership specifically for the charitable fundraising initiatives.
