William Mulholland and the Rise of Los Angeles

By Catherine Mulholland | Go to book overview

Notes

The titles of Los Angeles newspapers will appear in abbreviated form— for example, Times for Los Angeles Times. All out-of-town papers are cited with full title, such as San Francisco Chronicle.

The following works will be cited by author's last name only:

Hoffman, Abraham, Vision or Villainy

Kahrl, William, Water and Power

Nadeau, Remi, The Water Seekers

Ostrom, Vincent, Water and Politics

Many of Mulholland's office files came to light in the late 1980s. The chance circumstances of one discovery are best described by Elizabeth Wimmer, retired Department of Water and Power special projects officer. “William Mulholland's office file material was received from Russell A. Majors of Valley Generating Station, who said he received it from a painter who bought an old file from salvage and found the papers inside it. ” Wimmer to C. Mulholland, January 1991.

Not so fortunate is the fate of the wonderful collection of clippings books kept by the Department of Water and Power since 1903. In the course of microfilming them in the late 1990s, a foolish decision was made to destroy some of the originals, thus degrading the possibility of making good-quality reproductions for future publication from the many interesting cartoons contained there.
