Historical NoteReturn to Top

Most of the sketches were written by descendants of the subjects; some by the subjects themselves; and others were prepared by the Phillips Camp historian. The biographies were collected in honor of early Utah pioneers and were written, in most cases, during the 1940s and 1950s. A few were written during the 1960s, with one or two prepared as late as 1974.

They contain biographical and genealogical information, as well as descriptions of experiences crossing the Atlantic to America and traveling across the plains to Utah. Minute details of pioneering life in Davis County, Utah, and other frontier outposts of settlement are illuminated. Described also are individual occupations and survival techniques along with information on offices held in, and services to, the church and the community.
