Remembering Platt National Park
https://www.nps.gov/chic/learn/historyculture/remembering_platt-np.htm

Platt National Park was designated on June 29, 1906. Now named the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, the park preserves partially forested hills of south-central Oklahoma near Sulphur.

Who was Platt?
https://www.nps.gov/chic/learn/historyculture/who-was-platt.htm

Orville Hitchcock Platt (July 19, 1827 - April 21, 1905)

"... During Senator Platt's final years in the United States Senate, he was actively involved in Indian Affairs and the work of the Dawes Commission. It was Senator Platt who sponsored the original legislation to establish the park as the Sulphur Springs Reservation in 1902. His work to keep the mineral springs found here accessible to all Americans was honored by Congress in 1906 when they directed that the Sulphur Springs Reservation be redesignated Platt National Park. ..."
