One of the fun things about the Western Waters Digital Library is the variety of interesting historical documents you can find. The M.W.A.K Columbian Newsletter from Mason-Walsh-Atkinson-Kier CO was sent to residents of the area and workers on the Grand Coulee Dam Construction project.
The newsletters are full of useful tips like “Do not stand behind concrete buckets when being lifted!” and “Never look at the brilliant light from a welding arc!” The M.W.A.K. scoops column give you an overview of humor and riddles from 1937. These documents come from Washington State University’s Frank Arthur Banks Papers, 1913-1957. The Western Waters Digital Library has other historic newsletters from different organizations for you to browse as well.
