A private caretaker's log was actually kept by caretaker Ken Fassler in the 1980s and constituted the bulk of his "Notes from the Island" on several occasions. Subsequent caretaker Peter Jones never kept a daily log, though he wrote a monthly "Notes from the Island" piece for the Islander. Caretaker Doc Taliaferro, on the other hand, wrote an extensive daily log. Current caretaker Joe Hage continues the tradition.
