The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.
Mr. and Mrs. Bennett Cox vacationed to Spokane and Seattle, Washington and took "The Quill" along when they visited Grand Coulee Dam, a gravity dam on the Columbia River built in the U.S. state of Washington between 1933-42. It was built to produce hydroelectric power and provide irrigation. Of the many public works projects of the New Deal, Grand Coulee Dam loomed largest in America's imagination during the darkest days of the Depression. It promised to fulfill President Franklin Roosevelt's vision for a "planned promised land" where hard-working farm families would finally be free from the drought and dislocation of the untamed Columbia River.
