Catherine Rose Mulholland, granddaughter of William Mulholland, former Chief Superintendent of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, was a historian, writer, civic leader, and public speaker in the San Fernando Valley and the greater Los Angeles area, where she spent much of her life. The Catherine Mulholland Collection documents her personal and professional life, chronicles the life of her grandfather, William Mulholland, and provides a unique perspective for considering the early social, political and economic history of the greater Los Angeles area. Most significantly, materials contained in this collection demonstrate the many complex issues involved in Los Angeles water history, as well as the important roles played by politicians and political movements, private business and industry, civic organizations, and local, state, and federal governmental agencies in the quest to provide water to the ever-expanding population of Los Angeles.
