Lake Powell
Major John Wesley Powell led scientific exploration parties down the Green and Colorado Rivers in 1869 and in 1871-72. Years later Powell became a leader in government science programs, headed the U.S. Geological Survey and the Bureau of American Ethnology, and advocated enlightened land and water conservation policies which resulted in the passage of the Reclamation Act of 1902. In commemoration of his courage, his wisdom, and his years of public service, the reservoir behind Glen Canyon Dam has been named Lake Powell.
