28th Annual Report of the Board of Water & Power Commissioners.
City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.


EXCERPT.

After more than fifty years of service with the Water Works System of the City of Los Angeles, Mr. William Mulholland resigned as General Manager and Chief Engineer of the Bureau of Water Works and Supply, on December 1, 1928. Few men are privileged to serve in one institution for half a century, and none have ever played a more important part in the growth of any city, than Mr. Mulholland. His great vision, and dare to do the seemingly impossible, enabled him to carry to successful conclusion, the greatest project of its kind, making it possible for the City of Los Angeles to be what it is today. The Los Angeles Aqueduct is a lasting monument to a great genius, and a great man, who has earned a well deserved rest, and who has the good judgment to enjoy some of the fruits of his labor before it is too late.
