Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Frank Ross Peterson was born on September 7, 1941 in Montpellier, Idaho. After completing his education in local schools, Peterson served for two years as a missionary in the Great Lakes Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (1960—1962). Upon his return, Peterson enrolled at Utah State University and began his study of history. On December 6, 1963, Peterson married Mary Kay Grimes. Together they raised three children; Bret Ross, Bart Allyn, and Matthew Aaron. In 1965 Peterson graduated from Utah State University with his B.A., thereafter he continued his education at Washington State University until his graduation in 1968 with a Ph.D. in Twentieth Century United States History. From 1968—1971 Peterson taught history at the University of Texas. In 1971 Peterson began teaching at Utah State University, where he remained until 2004. Over the course of Peterson's career at Utah State University, he held many positions and served on many committees, among them; History Department Chair, Director of the Mountain West Center for Regional Studies, Executive Secretary of the David W. & Beatrice Cannon Evans Biography Award, and Director of the Perpetuation of Democratic Principles Workshop. Peterson was also involved with the Jenson Historical Farm of Cache Valley. Along with serving as an editor for The Dialogue; a Journal of Mormon Thought (1987—1992), some of Peterson's publications include; Idaho: A Bicentennial History, The Teton Dam Disaster: Tragedy or Triumph, The History of Cache County, and Prophet Without Honor: Glen H. Taylor and the Fight for American Liberalism. In 2004, Peterson became president of Deep Springs College, where he had previously taught several times as a visiting professor.

This collection is organized into three series. Series I contains Peterson's LDS missionary papers, publications, research papers, professional affiliations, and oral history materials. Series II contains a comprehensive collection of Peterson's personal and professional correspondence. Series III contains a collection of editorial correspondence (between 1983—1992) from The Dialogue; a Journal of Mormon Thought. Most of the publications contained in Series I consist of essays, some unpublished, and various drafts of Peterson's books. The oral history material contains of a rich array of local history in the form of typescripts, cassette recordings, and VHS recordings. A number of Peterson's speeches are also contained in this series.

Series II is organized into two sub-series of personal and professional correspondence. Peterson's personal correspondence contains letters written on his LDS mission and letters to and from his family and friends (1950-2004). Peterson's professional correspondence contains letters written as a professor of history and his involvement with various committees (1966-2004). These materials have been organized into outgoing and incoming correspondence (unless specified). Outgoing correspondence is organized chronologically. Incoming correspondence is organized alphabetically by the last name of the sender.

Series III contains various papers connected to The Dialogue; a Journal of Mormon Thought and F. Ross and Mary Kay Peterson's editorial correspondence for Dialogue. In addition, this series also contains the correspondence of other Dialogue editors and employees, such as Lavina Fielding Anderson and L. Jackson and Linda King Newell.
