Mike Shaffer found this about the dam.

The  Coolidge Dam  is a  reinforced concrete  multiple dome and  buttress dam  31 miles (50 km) southeast of  Globe, Arizona  on the  Gila River . Built between 1924 and 1928, the Coolidge Dam was part of the San Carlos Irrigation Project. Coolidge Dam was named after the 30th US President,  Calvin Coolidge  and was dedicated by President Coolidge on March 4, 1930. The design and construction engineer was Herman Neuffer, who oversaw much of the construction undertaken by the  Bureau of Indian Affairs  (BIA) during the 1920s in Arizona and New Mexico.
