Indian Detours: 1931

In March, 1931, Fred Harvey sold the Indian detour business to Hunter Clarkson, who had managed the operation for Harvey from the start. This booklet is dated April, 1931, and reflects some of the changes made under the new owner.

The booklet has fewer pages and uses flimsier paper the 1930 edition, but that may simply represent the effects of the Depression. Clarkson eliminated some of the less popular tours, but the biggest change was in the rates, which Clarkson reduced to $35 for a two-day tour and $55 for a three-day tour, including meals and accommodations. The cost of a one-day tour was $15.
