Title Quinney Contributions Past and Present to Gain Archives Honor
Creator Friends of the Ski Archives
Description ASpring 1993 Newsletter Editor: Mike Korologos Quinney Contributions Past and Present to Gain Archives Honor Maybe it's their dogged determination or their incredible foresight, or their unbending spirit of adventure . . . whatever, pioneers seem to perpetuate dreams. Such is the case with the late S. J. Quinney. The prominent Salt Lake City attorney was an original incorpora- tor of the Salt Lake Winter Sports Association in 1938, which later became the Alta Ski Lifts Company. Others were E. D. Nordquist, Paul Keyser, Steward Cosgriff, Bartlett Wicks, W. J. O'Connor, Lincoln Ure, Percy Kittle, and B. R. Parkinson. This group developed Alta after the Union Pacific Railroad selected Sun Valley for development instead of Alta, Brighton, or Snow Basin. "Joe" was secretary-treasurer of the incorporating group from 1939 to 1958 and served as president of Alta Ski Lifts from 1958 to 1980. In 1967, he drafted Utah's Passenger Tramways Safety Bill that became law in 1969 and is regarded as one of the finest tramways laws in the country. A member of the Utah Ski Hall of Fame, Joe was born in Logan in 1892. He was graduated from Utah State University and served in the Army during World War I. He was graduated in 1919 from Harvard University with a degree in law. While in school, he married Jessie Eccles and in 1919 passed the Utah Bar and opened his law practice in Salt Lake City. He served in the Utah House of Representatives in 1921. In 1967 he was the recipient of the Winter Sports Award of the Salt Lake Area Chamber of Commerce. He died in November 1984 at the age of 92. That was then. This is now: the S. J. and J. E. Quinney Foundation is the single The late Joe Quinney at his beloved Alta, which he helped estab- largest contributor to the University of Utah Marriott Library Ski lish, will be honored by Utah Ski Archives next October.

Funds from the foundation are providing the financial base necessary for the archives' many endeavors, including the oral history program, general collection development, and preservation of the archives. For his contributions to skiing then and for the financial support his foundation is giving now, the Ski Archives program will honor the late ski pioneer next October, announced Dr. Greg Thompson of the library's staff and co-founder of the archives program. The foundation will receive the library's Achievements and Contributions Award, presented last year to Sverre Engen. The fall program, scheduled for Salt Lake City's Red Lion Hotel, will also honor other ski area developers whose identities will be announced later.
