Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Clyde Anderson was a commercial photographer and cinematographer in Utah during the early to mid twentieth century. The subject matter of his collection varies widely, ranging from Utah scenes to portraits and Dude ranches. Anderson's collection contains many images of the Great Salt Lake, especially sailboats and motor boats. The Clyde Anderson collection also contains three folders of speed racing on the salt flats, six folders of Dude Ranch activities, and two folders of aerials and views of Salt Lake City. The remaining photographs of the collection vary much in subject matter. For additional Clyde Anderson photographs see Ski Archives P0377, Ruth Peay Collection.
