Prendergast and Friends

Hello everyone,

My name is Nick, and I just joined the CLIR Team last week. I've been spending my first shifts analyzing and scanning the Joseph J. Prendergast papers, which so far have included surprisingly impassioned speeches on water regulation in the Coachella Valley. Some of these speeches were given by the father of California's current governor, Edmund G. Brown Sr. I admit I am curious what solution exactly emerged from these fierce governmental discussions of 1961-62, but I'll have to wait until next week to find out. Stay tuned.
