The viewer can access details of the project in Ontario Hydro's 1948 Publication, "Des Joachims Generating Station, Ottawa River," and a month-by-month account of the dam's construction as detailed in the final edition of the Ontario Hydro Construction Division's publication, "DesJoachims News."
An account of the project, as seen through the eyes of freelance writer, Bruce McLeod, and published in the November 1950 issue of Maclean's magazine under the title, "The Biggest Dam' Dam I Ever See," brings a human touch for the viewer.
The presentation concludes with an acknowledgment of the sacrifice made by those who lost their lives during construction.
