Blog: Kennedy’s Last California Speech
From the Alex Breitler Environment blog:
“It’s all Kennedy, all the time at my house right now. Some of the documentaries about the 50th anniversary of his assassination have been outstanding.
“The coverage made me think about Kennedy’s last visit to California. Seven weeks before he was killed, the president dropped in on Shasta County to dedicate Whiskeytown Dam, the last piece of a project to divert the Trinity River from its own native watershed into the Sacramento Valley.”
Water Education Foundation’s Aquapedia: In the news has also been the 50th anniversary Sept. 28, 2013, of President John F. Kennedy’s dedication of the Clair A. Hill Whiskeytown Dam. The Foundation’s Aquapedia has the back story if you’re curious about the man behind the name. Clair A. Hill’s bio is included in the Historical Water People section of the Foundation’s free online water encyclopedia.
