Table of contents What's This?
Duane L. Georgeson worked as a civil engineer for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and the Metropolitan Water District. The Duane L. Georgeson Papers document his 53-year career working as an engineer with water and water systems in Los Angeles, during which time he worked to improve and impact water policies and procedures in Southern California, contributing to the political and economic water climate currently in place today.
Duane Georgeson was born in Maddock, North Dakota in 1935. When he was ten years old he moved with his family to the San Fernando Valley. He enrolled at the University of California Los Angeles in 1953, graduating in 1957 with a degree in engineering. Having an interest in Civil Engineering, he applied for a job with the California Department of Water and Power (DWP) soon after graduation. He was hired in 1959, and within six months was promoted to a Civil Engineering assistant.
