Historical Note

Bernard Alfred Etcheverry (1881-1954) was an instructor of civil engineering at the University of California from 1902 - 1903, and associate professor of irrigation engineering from 1917 until his retirement. He was also an associate professor of civil engineering at the University of Nevada from 1903 to 1905, and an associate professor of irrigation engineering from 1905 to 1917. Additionally, Etcheverry was a consulting engineer for various projects in British Columbia, Washington, and California.

This collection of specifications and blueprints for water reclamation in the western United States was used as source material for Etcheverry's three volume book Irrigation Practice and Engineering, published by McGraw-Hill from 1915 to 1916. Photographs removed to photo collection P0104 were used to illustrate this publication.
