I thought that I would share a link to my thesis that I worked on at the University of North Texas. It was a lot of fun and I got a little carried away with the length of the project. But I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and thought I would make it available on the THL website.
The North Texas Region and the Development of Water Resources in the Trinity River Basin of Texas, 1840-1998.
This study focuses on the development of water resources in the Trinity River basin for navigation, flood control, water supply, recreation, and allied purposes. Special emphasis is given to the development of the upper Trinity River basin through the influence of community leaders in Dallas and Fort Worth. A desire harbored for generations by upper basin residents for creating a navigable waterway on the Trinity River coalesced in the twentieth century into a well organized movement for all facets of water resources development. Sources include correspondence, speeches, and promotional materials of civic leaders, politicians, and other citizens, as well as works by the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
