Fort McIntosh: The Story of Its History and Restoration of the Site– by Frank F. Carver, 2nd edition, May 1993. 101 pages. 25 illustrations. The definitive story of its history, archaeology and restoration. From the time of his retirement as Athletic Director at the University of Pittsburgh in 1969 until his death in 1982, Carver’s life was almost entirely devoted to the fort. He was an active member of the “diggers” who worked for 4 years to rediscover and restore the original foundations. He also spent thousands of hours in research, writing and working out the countless arrangements that were part of creating the restored site that now exists on River Road.
