|On May 8, 1933, Harold Ickes, Franklin Roosevelt's Secretary of the Interior, |
decided that the name of this dam should be "Boulder Dam." Construction started
in 1931 on the concrete gravity-arch dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River,
on the border between the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada, and it was opened in 1936.
In 1947 a resolution naming it Hoover Dam was passed by Congress and signed by President Truman.
