This is really interesting. I have the 1970 version of the Starr Guide map and the trail near Garnet Lake shows its current alignment to the east of the lake and what appears to be a side trail circling Garnet to the west. The 1970 map also shows the JMT extending all the way to Whitney Portal with a spur trail (in red) leading to the summit of Mt. Whitney. Another notable difference is that Edison Lake appears on my 1970 map, and didn't exist in the earlier edition.
