Autographed photograph of Alvin Wirtz, sent to Max Starcke, LCRA's second general manager.

 

Alvin J. Wirtz, the “father of LCRA,” played an instrumental role in creating the organization.

 

An attorney and former Texas state Senator, Wirtz developed an expertise in water, utility and political issues. His role in creating LCRA grew out of his need to obtain funding in the early 1930s (during the Great Depression) to complete the construction of a dam on the Colorado River by a client that had gone bankrupt. When his search for private investors proved fruitless, Wirtz sought funds from one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal public works program. Wirtz also wrote the legislation creating LCRA and steered the bill through four legislative sessions to its eventual approval in November 1934.

 

As LCRA’s first general counsel, Wirtz maintained federal support for construction of Buchanan and Inks dams and worked for federal approval for what would become Mansfield Dam to manage and store floodwaters.

 

Wirtz and Lyndon B. Johnson became great friends when Johnson, as a congressional assistant in Washington, helped direct Wirtz to the right people to discuss federal funding for the Buchanan Dam project. Later, Wirtz supported Johnson when he embarked on his first U.S. Senate campaign. Wirtz and Johnson forged a relationship that created and expanded LCRA’s public power and other programs that transformed Central Texas and helped shape the LCRA of today.

 

Wirtz served as LCRA's General Counsel from 1935-1940, when he was appointed Undersecretary of the Interior (1940-1941). He returned to his Austin law firm in 1941 and briefly served as a consultant on power affairs under Secretary of the Interior, Harold L. Ickes.

ramps are notoriously carelessof railroad property and are a menace whenever they secure access to it. Thefires which they start to cook their chow with, are dangerous. Gaining en-trance to box cars for shelter and transportation, they throw burning matchesand cigarette and pipe ashes about and cause many costly losses. They and trespassers are an urmiitigated menace, and sentiment shouldplay no part in the attitude of railroad employes toward them. They have no righton our property and when seen on it by employes, should be arrested and punished.In addition, conspicuous No Trespassing signs should be posted on ourproperty. Efficient watchman service should be maintained in yards, and cardoors should be properly closed and secured when not in use.
