Ruby M. Johnson to Governor Edward F. Arn

Ruby M. Johnson to Governor Edward F. Arn
Creator: Johnson, Ruby M.
Date: July 12, 1951
Farmer Ruby M. Johnson of Randolph, Kansas, writes Governor Edward F. Arn of Topeka, Kansas, concerning flood control on the Kansas River and its tributaries. The 1951 flooding of the Missouri and Kansas rivers and their tributaries resulted in one of the most devastating natural disasters to strike the Midwest. The flood lent support to the Pick-Sloan plan authorized by Congress in the Flood Control Act of 1944. The plan called for a series of large dams and levees on rivers in the Missouri River basin. Many farmers opposed building large dams and reservoirs, favoring control through small dams and conservation practices. Mr. Johnson challenges the arguments of General Lewis A Pick, Chief of Army Engineers, on the effectiveness of the proposed Tuttle Creek dam north of Manhattan (Riley County). Mr. Johnson's farm was located within the bounds of the proposed Tuttle Creek reservoir and he protests the government's efforts to remove farmers from this area.
