9780738541525: Tennessee Valley Authority in Vintage Postcards (TN) (Postcard History Series)

Created by the federal government in 1933 to revitalize a region twice the size of New England, the Tennessee Valley Authority began as an experiment of unprecedented proportions. Seen here through picture postcards, the dramatic achievements of the TVA take on a personal aspect, as individuals visit the hydroelectric projects and enjoy the newly created recreational opportunities. Tangible benefits are also documented, such as improved navigation, new roads and bridges, and abundant and

inexpensive electricity. Influenced by such visionaries as Gifford Pinchot, Theodore Roosevelt, and George Norris, the agency also dealt with regional issues, including river

commerce, soil conservation, and flood control.

About the Author:

In this contribution to the region's history, author Mark Allen Stevenson, a professional engineer in Chattanooga, reviews the development of TVA's hydroelectric projects as the area emerged from the Depression and prepared for war. Tennessee Valley Authority celebrates the achievements of this remarkable agency, now approaching its 75th anniversary.
