Description

This letter dated May 29, 1947, from United States Senator William Langer to Anna (Mrs. George) Corbin, Langer replies to Corbin's letter of May 9, 1947, in which Corbin expresses her opposition to the Garrison Dam Project and argues that no one in North Dakota (ND) will benefit from the project.

In his reply, Langer argues that ND will indeed enjoy benefits from the dam, including cheap power, irrigation and flood control. He cites as examples the Boulder and Grand Coulee dams, which he argues no one would now say shouldn't have been build, even though there were dislocations and inconveniences related to their construction.
