WHAT: The Oregon Encyclopedia continues its monthly series of History Nights at McMenamins Edgefield. In 1946, the U.S. Department of the Interior issued a 10-year moratorium on building dams below the McNary Dam on the Columbia River in response to concerns by biologists and fishermen about the health of the salmon fisheries on the river. Within 18 months, however, the department reversed its decision and began to build more dams. William L. Lang will explain why the moratorium was reversed, who was involved, and what was - and still is - at stake.
