July 27, 1942: "Vaughn Peak is superior to Iver's Peak as an AWS post. It is close to logging operations but donkey setups will be moving farther away from the point so logging noises should gradually be reduced. My recommendation is to move the AWS post from Iver's Peak to Vaughn Peak with the following conditions: 1. State of Oregon acquire title to the land needed for lookout and AWS improvements. 2. State of Oregon handle the slash hazard as speedily as possible prior to construction of AWS buildings. Costs of slash disposal not to be paid from AWS funds." (A letter from W.N. Parke, AWS Inspector to James Frankland, USFS Engineering)

September 11, 1942: "Construction of the 14x14 Aladdin building at the new location for the Iver's Peak post is being held up pending disposal of the slash at the top of this point. It is expected that work at this station can be started shortly." (Letter to James Frankland from W.N. Parke, AWS Inspector)
