Biographical/Historical note

Quoted from Guide to the Pacific Northwest Waterways Association Records (Whitman College, Walla Walla, WA):

"In 1934 the Inland Empire Waterways Association was established as an advocacy group to represent the interests of the transportation industry, forestry, agriculture, energy producers, and local governments in Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. Most notably, they lobbied at the federal level for the construction of the locks and dams on the Columbia and Snake Rivers."
