Historical Cave Lengths

Searching for historical cave lengths...

NSS Cavers -

I'm searching for whatever data I can find on the known (or estimated) lengths of caves in 1941. While I realize there will be little data from back then, anything I can find would be helpful. CaverBob's data goes back to 1979, but Dave Bunnell​ suggested the national parks might have localized information.

Any ideas from the hive mind?

Thanks!

No replies in months. The best I can come up with is...

1979 is just slightly less than halfway from 2015 to 1941. Take the 2015 lengths and divide by two?

Sorry... :tonguecheek:

Yes, I'm sure we can use that. :)
