Abstract:

"Many men were instrumental in settling the Salt River Valley and in developing its water resources. This collection of their biographies, which first appeared in the Salt River Project's employe [sic] magazine, the Current News, is dedicated to Victor I. Corbell, who served the Project for 36 years. A member of the governing boards for 18 years and vice president for two years, he served as president of the Project for 16 years (1954-1970), longer than any other man. Although his service came long after that of our early pioneers, Mr. Corbell himself contributed immeasurably to water development in Arizona - The Editors of the Current News"--Title page verso.
