The Utah Humanities Research Foundation records (1944-1954) contain information on cultural materials throughout Utah and neighboring regions. The foundation, funded by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation in 1944, attempted to preserve and collect cultural materials from the area. Fellowships were granted to qualified people for study in various areas of the humanities. The results from these studies are included in the collection. Subjects covered in the collection are autobiographies, biographies, dance, drama, education, folklore, history, Indians, industry, printed materials, photography, and correspondence. Some items from the collection have been digitized and are available online.
