2 scour/slides - Calif, 1938-1988

 File — Box: 34, Folder: 7
Identifier: Subseries 5.3

Scope and Contents

From the Sub-Series:

Slides in this series provide a visual representation of Richardson's research and personal interests. The majority were relocated from other series in the collection, especially from Series 1. Talks on river engineering and Egypt in Subseries 4.1 contributed large numbers of slides to this series. Attempts were made to match slides with scripts in each folder; extra slides without clear connections to the talks were rearranged and refoldered by subject. Several hundred slides are part of presentations for short courses Richardson taught for the Federal Highway Administration, "Highways in the River Environment" and "Stream Stability and Scour at Highway Bridges." Over 100 slides relating to the 1976 Big Thompson Flood may be of special interest. Slides are arranged alphabetically by category and folder title.
