October 26, 1957: "With the completion recently of a 99-day season on Funk mountain Mrs. Harry A. Gavin, Omak has served a total of 1171 days as fire lookout, the forest service reports. Mrs. Gavin has put in 11 summers at this work, most of the time on Funk mountain north of Conconully. Conconully district ranger Don Caron said Mrs. Gavin is rated as one of the best lookouts on Okanogan national forest. 'It is through the sincere effort of such devoted people as Mrs. Gavin that our fire detection program operates so efficiently,' Caron commented." (The Spokesman-Review)
