HIS 351 - Water Justice Resource Guide: Flooding

This guide provides students in Dr. Newfont's HIS 351 "Water Justice" course (Fall 2020) with additional primary and secondary resources to aid in research, discussion, and class projects.

Introduction to Flooding Resources

The vast majority of SCRC resources related to flooding have to do with the 1937 Ohio River and Mississippi River flood that devastated many Kentucky communities. There are also collections related to the Red River Gorge and other dam construction proposals and projects in Kentucky. Because of the course focus on the 1927 Mississippi River flood, the secondary sources listed below mostly focus on that event.
