Help comes from many people in a work such as this, with debts owed to librarians and archivists of special collections throughout California. Foremost of value have been materials from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, with special thanks to Elizabeth Wimmer, retired public affairs officer, who led me to obscure items of interest when I first began my research. Later, Paul Soifer and Tom Connors, archivists of the Records Center of the LADWP, were also most helpful, as was Linda M. Colton, former principal civil engineering drafting technician, who helped prepare the maps in this book.

Hynda L. Rudd, records management officer, and Robert B. Freeman, archivist, were generous and helpful in availing me of old city council records in the City Archives of Los Angeles.

I also extend my gratitude to the following libraries and their staffs:

Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley Delmar Oviatt Library, California State University, Northridge Huntington Library, San Marino Los Angeles County Library, San Fernando Los Angeles Public Library National Library, Dublin, Ireland Research Library, University of California, Los Angeles Stanford University Libraries, Department of Special Collections Water Resources Center, University of California, Berkeley
