Series 2 Newspaper Clippings 1960-1966

Physical Description: 8 file folders


Arranged chronologically by date of article.

Scope and Content Note

These are clippings received by the Board from a press clipping service. They have been selected, based on significance, from a much larger group of clippings (9 cubic feet) and copied to bond paper. The clippings reflect the broad nature of the Board’s work relating to the state’s interest in access to and use of the Colorado River. A large portion of the clippings relate to California’s suit with Arizona over water rights to the lower Colorado River.
