Description News From the Archives THE ARCHIVES ADVISORY BOARD WELCOMES NE WMEMBERS The Utah Ski Archives welcomes as new members of the advi- sory board, Mark Menlove, recently named executive director of the Utah Ski Association and Ski Utah. Mark was formerly the communications director for Park City Ski Area. The Advisory Board also welcomes as a new member John Hoagland, winter sports and resort specialist for the Intermountain Region of the USDA Forest Service. Both of these new members bring to the board a great deal of expertise and experience that will be of value in furthering the mission of the Utah Ski Archives. L. to R.: Joe Arave; Mason Beckley ISHA, President; Bob Staab; and Greg Thompson NEW ADDITIONS TO THE ARCHIVE'S COLLECTION The collections of the Utah Ski Archives continue to grow. This year's film collection can boast additions from Bob Smith who made Utah ski promotional films in the early 1970's. There were 12 films donated. There is also footage from 1939 of Alf and Corey Engen mak- ing an inaugural jump from Snow Basin's Becker Hill, donated by Jack Becker. The two famed Engen Brothers threw roses over their shoulders as they sprung skyward from the jump. Another valuable piece that has been added to our video collection this year features a three hour interview with Alf Engen. The interview was conducted by Larry Warren and taped at Bear Hollow, site of the Alf Engen Ski Museum. The Archive's collection of photographs continues to grow as well. Donated by Catherine Strong is a scrapbook kept by Mrs. Strong's relatives of the Brighton area during the 20's, and 30's. The scrapbook is a great pictorial history of many aspects of the Brighton area. Ted Major, founder of the Teton Science School, and an early Alta skier has also donat- ed many early photographs of that area. The many photos, films, and documents that con- tinue to be donated to the archives contribute a great deal to our mission of documenting Utah's illustrious ski history. L-R Dick Durrance and wife Miggs with ISHA Associates INTERNATIONAL GROUP GATHERS AT PARK CITY During the week of April 4-9 Park City was the gathering place for the International Skiing History Association.
