Description

This letter, dated January 2, 1952, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Walter Ferguson (spelled "Fergusen" in this letter and "Ferguson" in a subsequent letter from Burdick; the more common "Ferguson" was chosen as the spelling for both entries) of White Earth, North Dakota concerns the size of Garrison Dam and how many acres of land it will require. The letter states that Burdick is doing all he can to prevent the US Army Engineers from building a pool of more than 17 million acre-feet and that he suggests Ferguson not yet make a deal to sell his land. The letter concludes that Ferguson should contact Bigelow Neal who is working on the issue. See also:
