Description

This letter, dated February 28, 1952, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Walter Ferguson (spelled "Fergusen" in an earlier letter from Burdick; the more common "Ferguson" was chosen for both entries) of White Earth, North Dakota (ND) concerns the size of Garrison Dam and how many acres of land it will require. In it, Burdick reminds Ferguson of his opposition the US Army Engineers buying up enough land for a 23 million acre-feet pool of water under the dam and repeats the recommendation he made in his last letter to Ferguson, that the latter should contact Bigelow Neal of Sanish, ND who is working on the issue.
