It has been the object of the writer to compile as complete a bibliography, as the time allowed, on the History of the Deep Water Project at Stockton, California.


The thesis proper has been directed to cover the major attempts to deepen the water channel from Stockton to San Francisco. Much of this material is not in a form to be readily accessible to the layman so I have included a great deal of it in the form of an Appendix; thus bringing it together, but not making it necessary for the reader to review it unless he or she feels the need of so doing.

I believe that the field of research regarding this problem has merely been "scratched along the surface," and it offers to the student and the community at large an opportunity to study "conflicting interests" and economic history in general.
