This volume is dedicated to the memory of Dr. James L. Sherard, who made many contributions to embankment dam engineering. Twenty-one of his papers related to this topic were selected for this memorial volume. A large portion of these are considered seminal papers of great value to the profession. The papers are preceded by an introduction prepared by either a co-author or someone closely associated with the work. Papers of lasting value as references on subjects such as seismic aspects, dispersive clays, hydraulic fracturing and filters have been included. His last two papers on the concrete face rockfill dam are the last two papers in this memorial volume.
