"Yves de Lalande" from The temple of Iconoclasts / J. Rodolfo Wilcock ; translated by Lawrence Venuti.
Typed letter, signed, from United States Secretary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes to United States Senate Minority Leader and Republican Senator from Maine Wallace H. White (1877-1952). Ickes discusses a report submitted by Senator Harlan J. Bushfield on behalf of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs proposing that all federal aid for Native Americans be withdrawn. Ickes criticizes the methods of legislators attempting to withdraw federal funding through piecemeal legislation, without holding formal hearings or allowing Native Americans to voice their opinions on the issue. Ickes cites John Collier, commissioner of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, who was also critical of the report, and urges White to consider the issue carefully.
Washington, D.C., 1944 October 25.

Crampton, C. Gregory (Charles Gregory), 1911-1995,
"The following pages bring together for the first time the outline of what is known about navigation on the major waterways of the Upper Colorado River Basin. We have carried the story from the earliest known beginnings up to the present year. The gleanings from written records, both printed and manuscript, were supplemented by a large number of interviews of persons knowledgeable in the history of the subject. In some instances the information presented is based almost wholly on interviews."--Prefatory note.
