Further Information The photograph is in good condition. The corners have slight creases in them and the photograph does show signs of discoloration due to age. Written on the back is the following: "A group of Wasatch Academy girls." There is no other information of who the girls are or when and where the photograph was taken. Wasatch Academy was founded on April 19, 1875 by the Reverend Duncan James McMillan whom also had a major influence in founding Westminster College. A protégé of Sheldon Jackson, he came to the Salt Lake Valley in March of 1875 to find refuge from his bronchial condition and to establish a proselytizing mission to convert Mormons. However, McMillan soon turned his efforts to education when his proselytizing efforts towards the Mormons proved futile. He then founded Wasatch Academy in Mount Pleasant, Utah and opened a number of subsequent schools of the same nature in northern and southern Utah.
Funding The Westminster College digital archives project is partially funded by the Masonic Foundation of Utah.
