  1. I am wondering if you could tell me which newspapers reported on Springville events in 1926. Are they available on-line?

    I am looking for any articles related to a J.B. Johnson who was struck and killed by a passing automobile on or about Sunday, January 10, 1926. He was an employee of the Bureau of Fisheries (predecessor to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) and was stationed at the Springville National Fish Hatchery.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    • Mr. Martinez,

      We have copies of the “Springville Herald” newspaper from the early 1930s until it ceased publication a couple of years ago. Prior to that time there was another newspaper in town called the “Springville Independent”, but we, unfortunately, do not have any copies of that newspaper. “The Daily Herald” in the neighboring city of Provo, Utah was publishing at that time and the “Deseret News” in Salt Lake City may also have covered the accident. Copies of those newspapers may be available online. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

  2. If you you are looking for historical presentations in the future I hope you might consider one or more on the topic of Abraham Lincoln and the Early Mormons. I am the author of three books on Lincoln including Abraham Lincoln and Joseph Smith (2014). I speak at BYU Education Week with eight different topics on Lincoln and his interactions with the Mormons of his day.

    I’m retired from a career with the LDS Church and recently served on the Young Men General Board with David L. Beck.
