||THANKS TO NANCY YOUNG...AND THE MANUSCRIPTS DIVISION In February of this year Nancy Young retired as head of the library Manuscripts Division.

She and her husband Robert are charter members of the Utah Ski Archives Advisory Board serving since its founding in 1991. Nancy and Robert are regular supporters of the annual Ski Affair. Nancy has been an enthusiastic supporter of the Utah Ski Archives from the beginning. As division head she personally reviewed all of the Ski Archive collections, and read every oral his- tory. Nancy was always helpful with sugges- tions concerning collections and often referred people for interviews. She provided leadership in directing the efforts of the Manuscripts Division staff, many of whom are directly involved in the work of the Utah Ski Archives.

His contribution to the sport is immense."
