Title James W Blain
Description To me. this tribute reveals a great deal concerning James W. Blain's personality and character. I have read it over many times and have been grateful for the man who wrote it. And what other activities did J. W. Blain engage in other than his school teaching? Born in Spring City, August 11, 1880, he attended the local schools and the BYU. Quoting LIFE UNDER THE HORSESHOE, he had many church positions, including Ward Amusement Chairman. Stake Y.M.M.I.A., Sunday School, High Council and Stake Presidency. He served as Postmaster for eight years and as Principal of the Junior High School for many years. He was treasurer of the Horseshoe Irrigation Company, City Councilman and City Treasurer. During his second election for Mayor he received all but one vote. He had a lovely wife, Dorcas Allred, and they were the parents of nine children. He passed away January 10, 1956. The following four lines from an unknown poet, describe my feelings about James W. Blain: I saw him once. He stood a moment there. He spoke a word that laid his spirit bare. He clasped my hands, then passed beyond my ken. But what I was I shall not be again. James W. Blain - early school teacher. Spring City, - Courtesy Dorothy J. Buchanan 140
