Scope and Contents

"The Water Resources Collection was developed in the 1930s by then Librarian Willis Holmes Kerr, Librarian, and Claremont Colleges Trustee John Treanor. At this time, the water problem interested both men, and they began to collect materials on the subject of water, its distribution, augmentation, and use in Southern California. By traveling to the Hoover Dam, the Imperial Valley, into Arizona, and to the San Joaquin Valley, they assembled literally tons of records: reports of engineers, annual reports and minute books of boards of directors of water companies, documents of federal and state governments, promotional pamphlets, newspaper clippings, and a host of other materials.
