George B. Hartzog, Jr. (1920-2008) was the seventh Director of the National Park Service and served from 1964-1972 until he was dismissed under pressure from President Richard Nixon over a dispute over Hartzog's cancellation of a special use permit of a friend of Nixon's. Outspoken, Hartzog led the NPS through a great deal of expansion, including many urban parks.
