Description Ski Racing Magazines Bolster Ski Archives Roy Webb Multi-media Archivist, Marriott Library This was another productive year for the J. Willard Marriott Library's Utah Ski Ar-chives in terms of new collections as several skiers and supporters donated items ranging from a few digital photos to major research collections. Many items came to the library as part of the preparations for the annual Ski Affair and the Intermountain Ski Hall of Fame's annual induction ceremony, including photos and other memorabilia from Phil Jones, former president of Park City Resort and son of Claude Jones, long-time ski pioneer in Idaho. Robert C. Ecker loaned a photo album to the library's multimedia archives contain-ing photos of his late grandfather, Pete Ecker, well-known photographer and ski promoter from Salt Lake City during the first part of the last century whose name was em-blazoned on the storied ski jumping hill in Parleys Canyon, Ecker Hill. In addition, long-time Ski Archives contributors Marvin Melville and Jim Gaddis added photographs to their collections. The Utah Ski Archives Advisory Board of Directors and the Inter-mountain Ski Hall of Fame Board of Direc-tors contributed DVDs, records, photos, and other materials to document their own histo-ries. In the area of ski films and videos, Ski Archives board member Nona Weatherbee, of Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, do-nated a number of very interesting films that she found in the resort's ski instructor's of-fice. This donation included a mint copy of the 33 rpm record "Spectacular: Yodeling by Arthur Brogli." We also received numerous 16mm films relating to the National Ski Pa-trol. Barbara Stewart Anderson, a long-time supporter of the Utah Ski Archives, donated a copy of the film Before Sundance, which is about Timp Haven Ski Area in Provo Can-yon, founded by her father, Raymond Stew-art. To facilitate access to the film and video-tape collections relating to skiing, the li-brary's Moving Image and Sound Archivist Molly Creel has been tracking has compiled a library research guide listing the collections and giving information on how to view them. You can find this guide on the Mar-riott Library's website at http:// But the biggest contributions this year came from three sources -- one very familiar to Utah Ski Archives members and support-ers; one recognizable to most Utah skiers, and one not as well-known. The first was from Alan Engen, former Director of Skiing at Alta and Intermountain Ski Hall of Fame member. Upon his retirement from Alta Ski Lifts, Alan found time to concentrate on his love of the history of skiing and donated 13 cartons of binders filled with historic ski im-ages- over 10,000 photos!-- and many other ski history items. This addendum to the Alan K. Engen collection adds immeasurably to his ski history archives, already one of the most comprehensive and important in the Utah Ski Archives. The other large contribution to the Utah Ski Archives that will be recognized by ski-ers is from Ski Racing Magazine, whose owner, Gary Black, had been negotiating with the Special Collections Department for several years about his publication's re-cords. While many, if not most, of you are familiar with Ski Racing Magazine (and some have appeared in its pages or know Gary Black personally) what you might not know is that in the course of half-century of reporting on the ski racing scene, Gary and Ski Racing accumulated an incredible archive of photographs and publications. In September of 2010, the Multimedia Archives staff cleaned out a large storage locker in downtown Salt Lake City where the entire archives of Ski Racing Magazine had been located since its move from Colo-rado. We were astounded at what came out of that locker: box after box after box of slides and prints of ski racers and events cov-ering the entire later part of the 20th Cen-tury. We later determined that the collection contained almost 100 cubic feet of photos and is estimated to contain almost 300,000 images. Later, we picked up over 100 bound vol-umes of the magazine, a complete run from its inception in the late 1940s to the pre-sent. This is the largest donation the Utah Ski Archives has ever received and we are very thankful to have this significant and historic collection. Through the generosity of Utah Ski Ar-chives board and other supporters, the Li-brary was able to purchase a collection from Gary Schwartz of California that present a unique view of the history of skiing as re-corded on Hollywood film. Mr. Schwartz has been collecting movies, recordings, and movie publicity stills from films that re-volved around skiing, many of which were either shot in Utah or featured Utah skiers as extras. So thanks to the hard work and dedica-tion of the Utah Ski Archives volunteer board and our many supporters in the com-munity, we have plenty to keep us busy for years to come. What's more, these significant additions to the J. Willard Marriott Library's Ski Archives add to its prestige and reputa-tion as a world-class repository of skiing history. We thank you all.
