Description:
circa 6.5 cubic feet (13 boxes) This collection reflects more than twenty years of the controversy regarding the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers efforts to alleviate flooding by constructing a dam in the Red River Gorge area in east central Kentucky. Congress initially authorized the construction of the dam in 1962, but through the efforts of numerous conservationists, local activists, and environmental organizations, the construction of the dam was eventually halted through a court injunction. The papers include correspondence, news clippings, magazine articles, reports, studies, court documents, memorabilia, photographs, and a cassette tape interview with Gorge residents.
