Papers of a Green Bay, Wis., attorney and environmentalist documenting his work against water pollution in the Fox River and Green Bay. Most of the collection concerns two pollution campaigns, one in 1949 led by members of the Brown County Izaak Walton League which resulted in stronger state laws on sewage and industrial pollution, and another in 1968 following a complaint filed with the Department of Natural Resources against the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District charging inadequate action. Included are newsclippings, hearing transcripts, legal documents, correspondence, reports of the state Committee on Water Pollution and the Board of Health, and other papers.
