Newspaper Clippings - The Saga of Carter's Dam - #2, April 1958


Document Type

News Article

Publication Date



The Jesse Carter Collection at Golden Gate University School of Law Library contains many newspaper clippings that represent the jurist’s career. These clippings have been digitized for inclusion in this archive.

Some of the attached files are of poor print quality due to the quality of the originals we have on hand. Some articles have had their columns adjusted to fit on one page. We have added the date and name of the newspaper where it is known. It is likely that all articles were taken from either the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco Examiner, or the Marin Independent Journal.
