This letter dated April 4, 1958, from Greater North Dakota Association Publicity Director Donald C. Gackle to United States House Representative Usher Burdick, expresses support for naming the Garrison Dam reservoir "Lake Sakakawea." The letter opens with a statement that Homer Ludwick has already written Burdick to thank him for supporting the name "Lake Sakakawea." Gackle acknowledges some of the general public object to this proposal, but Gackle reaffirms the support of the Greater North Dakota Association. Gackle closes by complimenting Burdick's knowledge and appreciation of North Dakota history.
