Historical NoteReturn to Top

Dr. Wade Huff Andrews received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from Utah State Agricultural College, and his Ph.D. from Michigan State University. Andrews studied the sociological aspects of natural resources development during his twelve years on the faculty at Ohio State University, and his three years as a USDA collaborator at Colorado State University. In 1965 he became a faculty member of Utah State University, where he retired as emeritus in 1981. Andrews also involved himself in community affairs through his affiliation with the Sons of Utah Pioneers, and the Cache Valley Historical Society. He passed away May 22, 2000 at his home in Logan, Utah.

Dr. Andrews conducted research in water resource applications with the Utah Water Research Laboratory, as well as founding the Institute for Social Science Research on Natural Resources at USU. The Bear River Project was proposed by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and envisioned constructing several dams on the Bear River watershed, including at the Oneida Narrows, Honeyville, Utah, and at the Glendale Reservoir-Worm Creek system.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Of particular importance in this collection are the materials for a study on the Bureau of Reclamation's Bear River Project (BRP), and Dr. Andrews attempt to study the issue from the perspective of competing interests. Although several related publications evolved from this research, it appears the larger work on the BRP, specifically, was never published. Additional materials related to natural resources, and correspondence arising from his position within the Sociology Department, comprise the balance of the collection.
