Hallie Morse Daggett was the first woman hired on as a fire observer by the U.S. Forest Service in 1913. Ms. Daggett staffed an original log cabin fire lookout called Eddy Gulch Lookout. The cabin was at the top of 6,444 foot Klamath Peak in the Siskiyou Mountains of northern California. The State of California passed an amendment granting women the right to vote only two years earlier, in 1911.
