A civil engineer with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Geological Survey, and Colorado State University, Robert Glover (1896-1984) conducted research on concrete cooling, dam construction, groundwater flow, and more. His collection documents his extensive work on these subjects as well as his personal life, and it includes reports, articles, memoranda, correspondence, data, calculations, notes, diaries, slides, photographs, negatives, artifacts, maps, and charts. For more information see the finding aid, https://lib2.colostate.edu/archives/findingaids/water/wreg.html

This digital collection, with materials dated 1905 to 2008, contains employment files, photographs, slides, and subject and project files concerning concrete, dams, and groundwater, as well as all of Glover’s journals (1923-1984), which thoroughly detail his daily work.
