Collections of color photographs from Bud Rusho of Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. Includes many construction views and the area that would be submerged by the filling of Lake Powell. In 1958 W.L. 'Bud' Rusho (1928-2011) was appointed as a public affairs officer in the Bureau of Reclamation, and his initial assignment required him to move to Page, Arizona where he was responsible for conducting tours of the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam. Upon the completion of the Glen Canyon Dam in 1963, the Bureau of Reclamation transferred Rusho to Salt Lake City, Utah where he continued his work as a public affairs specialist. For the ensuing twenty-five years of governmental service, Bud composed press releases, wrote speeches, and designed exhibits.
