3. University of Southern California (USC) Web Page on the Collapse of St. Francis Dam. "...Recent research has raised questions about Mulholland's responsibility, and also offered some possible answers as to what really caused the St. Francis Dam to break. A 1992 examination of the disaster concluded that, given the geological knowledge of the time, Mulholland was in fact innocent of criminal negligence--that the break was caused by the anchoring of the dam's eastern edge to an ancient landslide impossible to detect in the 1920s."
