Harvey Towns: 80th anniversary of the completion of Norris Dam


Harvey Towns: 80th anniversary of the completion of Norris Dam
March 6 -

Come join us for an exhibit by Harvey Towns commemorating the 80th anniversary of the completion of Norris Dam.

Opening reception will be this Sunday March 6th 2pm-4pm at Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge. Refreshments will be served.

On March 4, 1936 the outlet conduit gates in Norris Dam were closed and the storage of water in the reservoir began. This exhibit is intended to display rare and historic photographs of construction leading up to that event.

In March 2015 a cache of original panorama photographs taken by contract photographer Rell Clements to document construction of the dam was discovered at Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge. Because of the age and fragile condition of the photographs an effort to digitize and reproduce modern copies was begun.

The scanning, editing, and printing of the photographs was achieved by the generous contribution of time, equipment, and technical knowledge of Edward Stickle of Oak Ridge over a period of several months.

The exhibit was designed, printed, and assembled by Harvey Towns of Appalachian Frame Shop, Oak Ridge, combining the photographs of Children’s Museum with his own collection. Harvey and his wife Judy have donated this exhibit to the museum for future display.

Inspiration and support for this project was provided by E. Wayne Nobles, Photographer, Oak Ridge.
