Title

Lister Gave First Push to Columbia Project

Subject

Grand Coulee Dam (Wash.).

Description

This cartoon presents the story of the Grand Coulee Dam from conception to the eventual decision by the United States Congress to fund construction of the dam. This narrative emphasizes the role of advocates of the Gravity Plan, like Governor Ernest Lister and the Columbia Basin Irrigation League. The irony here, is that the Gravity Plan was in competition with the plan to build a dam at Grand Coulee and thus the efforts of many featured in the cartoon were at times in conflict with the eventual building of the dam.
