Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Ronald V. Jensen was born on March 18, 1895 in Huntsville, Utah. In 1915 he enrolled in Utah Agricultural College, now Utah State University; however, he only remained there for a year before enlisting in the Marine Corps. Following the end of World War I, Jensen was employed by a series of agricultural companies and the Bank of Italy before Anderson, Clayton, and Company, a California cotton company, hired him in 1929. There, he became the head of the banking department, working in agricultural processing and finance until his retirement in 1970. Following retirement, Jensen bought the Grant Hill Farm and donated it to Utah State University in order that it could become the Ronald V. Jensen Historical Living Farm and the Man and His Bread Museum. The Historical Living Farm was later renamed the American West Heritage Center.
