Arizona Secretary of State: Float along the early days of Lake Powell on the Arizona Memory Project

Arizona Secretary of State: Float along the early days of Lake Powell on the Arizona Memory Project. “A new partnership between the State of Arizona Research Library and the Glen Canyon Conservancy- John Wesley Powell Museum has resulted in the Stan Jones’ Glen Canyon Log Books collection. From 1966 to 1986, as Lake Powell filled behind the newly completed Glen Canyon Dam, Stan Jones explored the changing shorelines in his motorboat, writing down his notes and observations as the waters rose. Though the collection only contains two journals, their handwritten findings fill nearly 400 pages of material that Jones would later use in his books about Lake Powell.”
