George William (Jerry) Sherk has had a full career as both an attorney and a professor, specializing in natural resources and environmental law and policy at numerous government agencies, private law firms, and universities. His main interests include interstate water compacts and state water laws.
Sherk was born in 1949 in Washington, Missouri. He earned his bachelor's (1972) and master's (1974) degrees in political science from Colorado State University. He then attended the University of Denver College of Law, earning his Juris Doctorate with a focus on natural resources and environmental law in 1978. In 2002, he earned a Doctorate of Science in Engineering Management from the School of Engineering and Applied Science at The George Washington University where he focused on Environmental Management and Health.
As an attorney, Sherk worked in various positions, with the longest being six years (1984-1990) as a trial attorney in the General Litigation Section of the Land and Natural Resources Division in the U.S. Department of Justice. He followed this with a position of counsel to the law firm of Will & Muys between 1990 and 1993, working as an assistant to and forming a close relationship with Jerome Muys, who was Special Master for Texas and Oklahoma vs. New Mexico. Later, Sherk was heavily involved in the water allocation conflicts over the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint Basin (ACF) and the Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa River (ACT) Commissions, working with the state of Georgia (1994-1996) and LaGrange/Troup County, Georgia (1999-2003).
For over forty years, Sherk also worked as an associate or adjunct professor at multiple universities. He taught more than twenty different courses, including political science, engineering law, environmental law, environmental management, international law, natural resources, public land and resources, renewable energy, and water law and politics. He has also published widely, including articles, book chapters, legal proceedings, and books.
Sherk has received awards for teaching, research, and writing and is a member of several academic honor societies. He also holds five bar memberships, including the State of Colorado, Territory of American Samoa, and United States Supreme Court. His professional activities include service on committees for the American Bar Association and the American Society of Civil Engineers. Currently, he is consulting in both the United States and Canada, working as sessional on the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Regina and as an adjunct professor at the University of Saskatchewan.
The Papers of George William Sherk consists of documents dated 1892 to 2019, with the bulk falling from 1980 to 2005. Subject coverage focuses broadly on water law, litigation, and policy, and more specifically on issues of water allocation, management, and interstate water compacts and related conflicts. The collection primarily contains articles, reports, and legal proceedings, along with correspondence, notes, presentations, and conference materials. The collection does not document the wide extent of Sherk's teaching positions or his work in recent years.
Sherk kept his voluminous files well organized, and that organization was largely maintained here. Sherk's groupings were labelled as series or subseries as listed below.

The Papers of George William Sherk was donated to the Water Resources Archive by him in October 2017, July 2018, and October 2018. The core of the collection is from 46 boxes, selected from 75 boxes, previously stored at the Washington, D.C., office of law firm Sullivan and Worcester.

Processing

Processing was completed in March 2019. Materials were retained in the order in which they were donated. Loose papers and materials in binders were inserted in acid-free folders, and the collection was reboxed in acid-free boxes. Paperclips and binder clips were removed, and folder labels were stapled on. Items marked as confidential were either cleared as possible or extracted for return to the donor.

Subseries 2.1: ACF/ACT (Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint/Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa). 1938-2009 and undated.
This extensive subseries documents Sherk's work related to the tristate water-use conflict between Georgia, Alabama, and Florida concerning interstate river basins. Much of Sherk's work took place while he was a visiting professor at Georgia State University (1994-1996) and while he was a consultant for the City of LaGrange and Troup County, Georgia (1999-2003). The ACF and ACT compacts were ratified in 1997, and present here is documentation of earlier years of the dispute, as well as the eventual expiration of the compacts when no resolution was reached. Materials include legal proceedings, meeting notes, and correspondence. Files have been maintained in the order Sherk gave them, including the categories Pleadings; Buford Lanier Testimony; Articles and Studies; ESA Reports and Documents; FERC Permit Application; Compacts, Allocation Agreements, Analysis; Water Supply Studies and Reports; FOIA Request; and Statutory Requirements (Federal and State).

Subseries 2.11: Supreme Court cases. 1921-2019.
This subseries contains three sets of materials. The first, labelled with EWN (Energy-Water Nexus), is a small set of state laws and Supreme Court cases related to water rights conflicts. The second is a set of Special Masters reports in original actions in the U.S. Supreme Court and related materials. Sherk began the compilation for a project at the University of Dundee, Scotland. The cases all relate to interstate water conflicts, including on the Arkansas, Canadian, Connecticut, Delaware, North Platte, Pecos, Potomac, Republican, Vermejo, and Walla Walla rivers. Case files mostly include legal proceedings, discussions, and Sherk's work notes. The third is a small set of CapWIN (Capital Wireless Integrated Network) files, which concern a proposed interstate compact among agencies and jurisdictions in the National Capital region related to communications among first responders. Beyond the distinct sets, files are in no particular order. Materials with early dates are generally copies rather than original documents.
