This letter dated June 5, 1958, from United States (US) Assistant Secretary of the Interior Royce A. Hardy to US Representative Clair Engle, refers to H.R. 10445 and H.R. 10485, which would name the Garrison Dam reservoir "Lake Sakakawea." Writing in his official capacity, Hardy opposes renaming the reservoir because it is already commonly known as the Garrison Reservoir and because the Board on Geographic Names had already approved the use of another spelling of the name Sakakawea as the name for features elsewhere.
