Field Value
Title Clayton Hanson, a "Construction Stiff" at Grand Coulee Dam
Description I have chosen this as a character portrait exemplifying the typical "construction stiff" of Grand Coulee Dam." These construction men, rough and hearty, with toil-seamed faces and calloused hands, are the colorful characters of this era. Clifford R. Koester dedicated his project to the laborers who toiled on the Columbia Basin Project. This image is a direct reference to those who worked and died to achieve this modern engineering tour de force.
