J. Dietrich Stroeh
The Man Who Made it Rain

The challenge here was to create an original graphic image of a man who literally had the power of the rain gods. In the mid 1970's Marin county suffered from major droughts. Mr. Stroeh, head of the Marin Municipal Water District at the time, had a pipeline built to pump in water from other areas and truly saved Marin. The solution was a man holding an umbrella on a hot day surrounded by rain water.
