During his fifty-year career, Colorado civil engineer Royce J. Tipton (1893-1967) designed numerous large water infrastructure projects in the U.S. West and around the world and helped negotiate several interstate water compacts and international treaties. The collection concerns national and international water planning projects and mostly contains reports prepared by Tipton and his firms, though conference and government publications, slides, a film, and several plaques are also present. For more information see the finding aid.

This digital collection, with materials dated 1915 to 1969, includes biographical information, field books, two water engineering publications by Tipton, and a list of Tipton and Kalmbach reports.
