Title Purpose
Description PURPOSE Part of the inheritance that is ours here in the beautiful valleys in Sanpete County is the rich lore of the pioneer settlers who laid the foundations on which our communities are built. From these foundations, children born here have grown to capable men and women who have gone out into the competitive world and found success; or have stayed in the valleys and made their living from the soil, and have passed on to their children and grandchildren the heritage of their early ancestry. Each community in this county has its own stories of sacrifice and achievement; of struggle with the grasshoppers and the Indians; of early frosts and drouth and privation; and as these were faced and overcome, the hopes and dreams of the pioneers became a reality. A magnificent temple was erected and dedicated to the work of the Lord; a great Educational Institution was founded; homes, schools, churches were built. Sagebrush.. . flats were cleared and made into producing fields. Orchards and gardens were planted and the valleys began to blossom. It was to capture some of the fast disappearing stories of that early period before 18S8 that the idea for this year's contest began. According to the judges of the contest, it has been a success. Mr. Leland E. Anderson made the statement that the entries all have one thing in common, "they come from the soil." Appreciation to those who assisted with this contest would go to three natives of Sanpete who were judges for 1969. Mr. Leland E. Anderson, Now at BYU, native of Ephraim. Dr. Briant S. Jacobs, native of Mt. Pleasant, BYU Professor of English and literature, and Mrs. Christie Lund Coles, eminent Utah author, who was born in Salina, but spent most of her childhood in Mt. Pleasant. To Dr. and Mrs. H.B. McQuarrie for the special effort to get a photograph for the cover that is just right, to Ross P. Findlay, Larry and Joyce Stahle and Karen Sorensen for preparation and printing of the winning entries, to the Sanpete County Fair Board and to all members of the Committee for the Historical Writing Contest for 1969.
