Welcome!

My ancestor's company was one of the contractors who built the Grand Coulee Dam.. the world's largest dam (or used to be)!

Still the biggest concrete structure in the United States! I even see my last name in the list of construction companies!:

Grand Coulee Dam is a gravity dam on the Columbia River in the U.S. state of Washington built to produce hydroelectric power and provide irrigation. It was constructed between 1933 and 1942, originally with two power plants. A third power station was completed in 1974 to increase its energy production. It is the largest electric power-producing facility in the United States[3] and one of the largest concrete structures in the world.[1]

The proposal to build the dam was the focus of a bitter debate during the 1920s between two groups: one wanted to irrigate the ancient Grand Coulee with a gravity canal and the other supported a high dam and pumping scheme. Dam supporters won in 1933, but for fiscal reasons the initial design was for a dam 260 ft (79 m) shorter than envisioned that could not support irrigation. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and a consortium of three companies called MWAK (Mason-Walsh-Atkinson Kier Company) began construction that year. After visiting the construction site in August 1934, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt switched from supporting the cheaper "low dam" to the more beneficial "high dam". The high dam was approved by Congress in 1935 and completed in 1942; the first water over-topped its spillway on June 1 of that year.
