Gallipolis Locks and Dam

The official name is the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam.

But the old name is the one that I grew up with.

My grandfather, Col. Harry Pockras, was District Engineer for the Corps of Engineers in Huntington during much of WW2. Earlier, he had been the Corps' civilian Chief Engineer. He was the head of the design team for the dam and the old 1937 locks.
