    This collection of signed books are from the personal collection of Judge Donald A. Carpenter, who was a member of Congress from 1940-1943 and Chief Judge of the 19th Judicial District Court. His father, Delph Carpenter, developed the 1922 Colorado River Compact, a critical document in the development of interstate water treaties and the expansive growth of the western United States. President Hoover admired the work of Delph and would go on to help his son throughout his distinguished legal career.
