Historic Maps by Louis Fayerweather Cutter

Louis F. Cutter - Map of Trails to Tama and Mossy Glen, Randolph, N.H., 1944

In the last year of his life, at age 80, Cutter produced a large-scale (1 to 10,000) map of the area immediately around the Ravine House hotel that showed details of the intricate network of trails surrounding the old hotel. Though drawing on measurements from his earlier surveys, he dispensed with contour lines, producing a simple black-and-white map that could be used by hotel guests who, because of World War II gas rationing, were obliged to stay close to their vacation quarters.
