Inventory of the Thorne B. Gray Collection, 1887-1989, (Bulk 1966-1982)
Thorne B. Gray (1937-1993) worked as a journalist for the Modesto Bee from 1966 to 1982, where he covered city and county government with an emphasis on Central Valley water issues, land use, and natural conservation. He reported on the campaigns to preserve the Stanislaus and Tuolumne Rivers in the 1970s and the construction and filling of the New Melones Dam. (Thorne was a Sierra Clubber behind the scenes. He helped the Tuolumne get protected. Yet he constantly wrote in support of New Melones Dam, and ghost-wrote the first PR material opposing Prop 17 & the Stanislaus.)
