Chuck Wollenberg’s article on the rise and fall of the Reber Plan to turn San Francisco Bay into two fresh water lakes has been published online by BOOM a Jounal of California.  The article covers John Reber’s personal story, the debates between influential supporters and opponents of the plan in the 1940s and 50s, and the relationship between these events and the Save the Bay movement of the 1960s.
