Table of contents What's This?
A collection of photographs compiled or created by American hydraulic engineer Eugene Clyde La Rue (1879-1947), documenting his work on major irrigation projects and surveys in the western United States, 1905-1940s.
Eugene Clyde La Rue (1879-1947), a Los Angeles hydraulic engineer, was born in Riverside, California, and graduated from the University of California in 1904. He was employed by the U.S. Geological Survey to make field examinations for power sites and report on irrigation projects, first as district engineer for the Great Basin District headquartered in Salt Lake City (1907-1911), and then in the Water Resources Branch (1911-1927). La Rue later entered a private civil engineering partnership in Los Angeles.
