Historical NoteReturn to Top

Luther M. Winsor, born in Hebron, Utah on January 21, 1884, spent his whole life working with water, irrigation, and flood control. With his experience and expertise he was appointed to governmental positions on both the state and national level as well as serving as a specialist to private companies. The bulk of his work with irrigation and flood control kept him in Utah, but he also studied and developed water programs in Chile, Iran, Canada, and much of the western United States.

His early life in Hebron, Washington County, consisted of learning first-hand about irrigation, masonry, and railroad surveying. In 1904 he registered at Utah Agricultural College (now Utah State University) in Logan. From the outset of his education he focused on irrigation. He not only attended college, but he also gained valuable field experience by working under the State Engineer in Logan measuring water levels in canals and studying water use in crop production with an appointment from the United States Division of Irrigation Investigations. In 1911 he became the first person in Utah to receive a degree in Irrigation Engineering. In 1926 Winsor earned a Master's degree from the University of California, Berkeley.

Winsor held numerous positions, most of which were concerned with irrigation and flood control. Shortly after he received his degree, Winsor became the first County Agent in the West and served posts in the Uintah Basin and in Colorado. In 1913 he served as the Irrigation Specialist, a position he held for more than 20 years, for the state of Utah. It was in this capacity that he assisted in analyzing floods and developed the barrier system of flood control, in which debris is channeled away from flood waters.

Besides assisting in many flood control projects in Utah, in 1918 Winsor was called upon by the American Smelting and Refining Company to investigate irrigation and, as a result, increase food production for the company's copper mine camp in northern Chile. He would also assist the company on future projects in Garfield, Utah and Black Lake, Quebec. Winsor felt his most significant work, however, was in Iran (under appointment from the President of the United States) serving as Director General at the Ministry of Agriculture. Winsor spent almost five years in the 1940s in the Middle East.

Winsor published extensively about the many projects he assisted on or developed. On January 18, 1968 he passed away. His groundbreaking work set standards for flood control and irrigation not only in Utah, but throughout the West.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The L.M. Winsor Photograph Collection consists of 943 photographs and negatives that document Winsor's carreer as an irrigation specialist and flood control researcher. Collectively, the photographs show the step-by-step construction of many dams and flood control barriers, and chronicle the changing machinery and technologies used to build dams from 1915 to the early 1940s.

Box 1 documents the building of a dam at Enterprise, Utah from 1915 through 1918. Boxes 2 and 3 contain photographs and negatives in chronological order by year, from 1916 to 1941. Included in the images are many different irrigation and flood control projects, along with the surveying of the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. Box 4 is comprised mostly of unidentified prints. The photos in box 5 are part of a report submitted by Winsor to the Utah State Land Board. Although this report on Utah's flood problems was originally located in the manuscript collection (MSS 98), it was included because of the link with the photos in Box 5. Most photographs were given detailed captions by Winsor.

L.M. Winsor's original captions were used where available to describe the images. His original numbering was also maintained in addition to our own numbering system. Within the first 3 boxes, there is an occasional empty envelope with a typed caption. These original envelopes were kept in the collection because they may correspond with photos in the L.M. Winsor manuscript collection (MSS 98). This collection also contains a box marked "Picture Index," but does not refer to photographs in this collection. All of the negatives appear to be made of nitrate cellulose. Box 3 also contains 57 negatives which are recent copies of existing photos and negatives from the L.M. Winsor manuscript collection #98.

5:17: Timber coarse straw and boulders, were used to define the limits of the Willard Barrier Basin
5:18: Another view of the Barrier during the first few days of construction. The natural slope of the ground surface was away from rather than toward the channel excavated by steam shovel through the flood debris. When the flood was allowed to spread at random over the depository there followed a constant battle to prevent it from over-topping the lateral embankment, beyond which it would have flooded homes and orchard lands
5:19: A Beaver dam built by man to divert the stream (Willard Creek) into the Barrier Basin
5:20: Temporary spillway just above highway crossing
5:21: Drifting gravel becomes a menace following torrential floods. In an effort to cope with the problem, the State highway department in cooperation with the Willard Flood Relief Committee excavated a deep, narrow channel from the mouth of the canyon to the low lands, across the highway and both railroads a distance of over a mile. It had been assumed that by confining the stream in this manner its high velocity would carry the burden of sand and gravel along. On the contrary, however, the new channel was filled to bank level with gravel within 5 days after high water began to flow. Highway and railroads were blocked and valuable farm lands were buried beneath a heavy bed of gravel. Photograph shows emergency crossing highway, and teams at work endeavoring to keep the channel open on the day flood control work began May 8, 1924
5:22: The same as 5:21, five days later. When the stream was cleared of its burden, above the hastily improvised barrier, it was free to pick up a new load. Note the successive erosions caused by daily fluctuation in runoff from melting snows. The channel was deepened 18 inches the first night after control. 12 inches the second night during the peak of heavy runoff and so on until a permanent bed was reached 12 feet below highway level
5:23: Railroad crossing at Willard Creek--2 days after stream was placed under control

5:74: Ford Creek, Davis County, after the third torrential flood in recent years. The high banks of sand and gravel were deposited when Lake Bonneville occupied the higher levels. These banks are characteristic of each of the Davis County flood channels. It has been proved conclusively that the recent floods have cut through these Bonneville deposits for the first time since the lake receded over 25,000 years ago
