Description SJ. Quinney Award For Outstanding Contributions to Skiing Janet Quinney Lawson A lifelong devotee of skiing and a generous benefactor for many of its ancillary programs, Janet Quinney Lawson rightfully wears the tiara as a Grande Dame of Intermountain Skiing. The daughter of S. Joseph Quinney, whose name appears on the award, she will receive the coveted honor primarily for her support of the preservation of the history of skiing in the region. Beneficiaries of that support include the University of Utah Ski Archives, which was founded in 1989 with a grant from her family, the Arts and Cultural Programs of the Olympic Winter Games of 2002, and the $10 million Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center/Ah0 Engen Ski Museum at Utah Olympic Park, which was opened in 2002. She currently serves on the board of directors for the Alta Ski Lifts Company, Utah's first ski area, which was one of the initial supporters of the Ski Archives. 2005 Ski Archives Donation Report Once again the J. Willard Marriott Library Special Collections has benefitted from the hard work of the members of the Utah Ski Archives board, as well as from our efforts in the larger community to get the word out about the Marriott Library's Special Collections mission to document the history of Utah. Collection highlights include donations from: Mike Korologos, long-time supporter of the Utah Ski Archives, added photos of Park City and Snowbird to his already extensive collection. Alan Engen, a founder of the Utah Ski Archives, also added more material to his collection, including several more scrapbooks and photos of Evelyn Engen at the 2004 Ski Affair, and other shots of the Winter Sports Park and Alf Engen Ski Museum Gustav Raaum, a former champion ski jumper, called one day to ask if the Archives would like to copy his scrapbooks documenting his career as a ski jumper in the 1930s. He had already promised to donate the scrapbooks to another ski museum, but we do have digital copies of over 130 photos, and photocopies of the pages. Pam Scarpelli, attending the 2004 Ski Affair, donated three prints taken at a consumer ski show in Chicago in the 1970s, showing the Utah Ski Association booth. Elfreide Shane, also attending the 2004 Ski Affair, donated a photo of members of the Utah Ski Association taken in 1961. Rod Tatsuno of Sun Valley has donated photographs of skiing and of the Olympic Torch Run. Jean Saubert, Gladys Miller and Dolores LaChapelle, all of whom were honored at the 2004 Ski Affair, allowed us to copy images they had given us to use for the event. Carol Garner, member of the Ski Archives Board and Brighton Ski Resort employee, donated 30 photographs that had been taped together to form mosaics of ski trails. Judy Gunderson Harrison, granddaughter of Ole Gunderson, donated a photo of Ole and Julia Gunderson, along with a copy describing how Ole, a Park City miner, made some of the very first skis ever used in Park City. Ivin and Irene Munson donated photographs and films of Dallas Wayne Nichol skiing at Alta with Alf Engen, the Deseret News Ski School, and other subjects. Norm Burton, Utah Ski Archives board member, donated a copy print of four men in front of a house in Ogden, holding what could be some of the first skis in Ogden. Page 6
