(excerpted from NY Times article by Marc Lacey)

Using the Antiquities Act of 1906 (first employed by President Theodore Roosevelt 92 years ago today) President Clinton created the Grand Canyon National Monument.

Mr. Clinton also granted monument status to Agua Fria, 71,000 acres north of Phoenix containing prehistoric ruins, and to thousands of desolate islands, rocks and exposed reefs off the California coast and expanded the protected spire-like rock formations at the Pinnacles National Monument east of Salinas, Calif., by more than 8,000 acres.
