Title: Rising Flood Waters: 1964 Corvallis
Url: http://oregondigital.org/digcol/corflood64/
Publisher: Oregon State University. Library
University of Oregon. Libraries
Description: In 1964, a tremendous flood struck Corvallis, Oregon. It was a nightmare for the residents of the town, and during the recovery the Western Ways, Inc. group took 59 oblique photographs of the damage caused by this natural disaster. The Oregon State University Archives later digitized these images, and they are all available on this site. New visitors will note that they can just browse around the collection as they see fit, and they are also encouraged to use the "My Favorites" area to create their own collection for future reference. These aerial images are quite dramatic, and for anyone with an interest in engineering, hydrology, geography, and related fields, it will be quite fascinating.
