The Umatilla Irrigation Project was, in the early years of the 20th century, a controversial concept. It remains so today, and this booklet represents primary source material.
The text lists the Officers and Directors of the Association, its Articles of Incorporation; advertisements for local businesses, and background material outlining the significance and arguments in favour of the project. Scarce, especially with map present. Our research and inquiries with colleagues south of the border failed to disclose any evidence of a reprint. [Not in Smith, or Smith Supplement, Howes, Larned, Decker, or Streeter Vol. 6.]
