Original Video Contributed by James Guay
Great archive footage from my father Albert R Guay filming the construction of the Fort Peck dam. He took this footage when he was 17, at the time President Roosevelt showed up on site. From a historical point of view I feel it was very important. My dad did grow up in Fort Peck, and his father was on the army corp of engineers team as a plumber.
