Chris, be sure to check out

San Gorgonio Wilderness Area: Hearings Before the Subcommittee on Public Lands of the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, House of Representatives, 89th Congress, First Session, November 16-17, 1965

Joe Momyer’s own compelling testimony begins on pg. 183.   Only non-paywall access I found while briefly searching: https://books.google.com/books/about/San_Gorgonio_Wilderness_Area.html?id=tQk2AAAAIAAJ

also recommend: John Robinson, San Gorgonio: A Wilderness Preserved (probably out of print, used to be available from the SGWA Backcountry Store, as they were the publisher).  Nearby Smiley or Armacost libraries might have a copy and could possibly be news-archive goldmines?

What I feel is a fascinating must-read for any SGW enthusiast: Cynthia Holman’s masters thesis, The San Gorgonio Wilderness: A history of human presence and implications for management, https://scholarworks.lib.csusb.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=3903&context=etd-project

We are highly fortunate—what became the SGW could have turned out so differently!
