John B. Waldo (1844 - 1907) was an American politician, Chief Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court, and an unsung hero of the Pacific Northwest. Born in Oregon to immigrant parents from Missouri, he dedicated his life to the state and to its conservation. Exploring as much of the region as he could - especially the Cascades - Waldo lobbied to have Oregon preserved as national parkland. There are many stories about John. B Waldo and his love of the Cascades, and he left his mark on the region long before explorers attempted to do the same. After his death, Waldo Lake was named in his honor.
