Abstract

Illustrating how engineers, government agencies, and local advocates collaborated in the early twentieth century to control flooding in Ohio’s Muskingum River basin, Emory L. Kemp weaves together stories of local flood disasters, feats of river management, and a welfare-state program to share an engineering saga. Although river flooding threatened many communities, Kemp’s study reveals how Ohio uniquely positioned itself and set a national example in flood control.
