Preserving "A Fair Chance For a Free People" - Karl E. Mundt

Agriculture and Forestry

RG III Legislation - Agriculture and Forestry 1949-1972
30 Hollinger documents boxes (#327-357)


Senator Karl Mundt authored "The Agricultural Trade Development and Assistance Act of 1954", Public Law 480 or, better-known now as, the "Food for Peace" program. Mundt's legislative efforts produced the Soil Bank Program and the Endangered Species Act. Mundt's background with Lewis A. Pick, a colonel in the Army Corps of Engineers and in charge of the Missouri River Division and with W. Glenn Sloan, an investigations engineer of the Bureau of Reclamation and a pioneer in large-scale irrigation found its expression in the Flood Control Act of 1944. This Pick-Sloan plan was a compromise and embraced the entire Missouri River from its headwaters in Montana to its junction with the Mississippi near St. Louis. Four of the six dams were to be built in South Dakota but 530,000 acres of fertile farm land were flooded in South Dakota.
