Valley, which resulted in his dissertation,
The Central Valley Project: Federal or State? (also published by the
California State Assembly Interim Committee on Conservation, Planning and Public Works as Volume 13, no. 6, of the Committee's reports). Includes extensive interview notes, correspondence, reports, and detailed
annotations of sources consulted.
