Title Dear Ellen, Page 080
Description Dear Ellen ited, and the whole published in the Western Humanities Review, volume 13 (Spring 1959), pages 201-19. When the Clawson papers were presented to the University of Utah Library, additional Ellen Pratt letters were found. The papers afforded excellent opportunity for founding out the story of the two Ellens, hence this publication of their letters and biographical sketches. In addition to these two major collections of papers, there is a collection of Hiram B. Clawson papers in the Archives of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Salt Lake City, consisting of letters and telegrams sent by Clawson to Brigham Young and other presidents of the church. The "Journal History" makes hundreds of references to Hiram B. Clawson and members of his family; many of these references are to newspaper stories. Beaver ward and stake ecclesiastical records refer occasionally to the Pratt and Crosby families. Biographical sketches of Hiram B. Clawson appear in Tul-lidge's Quarterly Magazine, volume i (July 1881), pages 678-84; Edward W. Tullidge, History of Salt Lake City (Salt Lake City: Star Printing Company, 1886), biographical supplement, pages 129-32; Andrew Jcnson, Latter-day Saint Biographical Encyclopedia (Salt Lake City: Andrew Jenson History Company, 1901), volume i, pages 629-30; and Orson F. Whitney, History of Utah (Salt Lake City: George Q. Cannon and Sons Company, Publishers, 1904), volume 4, pages 201-3. His obituary was inserted in the Deseret Evening News, March 29, 1912. A clipping, undated, from the Evening Telegram, editorializing on the life and contribution of "Bishop Clawson," is found in the U/U, HBC Papers, Box 3, folder 10. A brief article, "General Hiram B. Clawson," was included in "Our Gallery of Pioneers," Deseret Evening News, May 9, 1914. Biographical information for Ellen Ciirlis Spencer Clawson has been drawn from the following: Aurclia Spencer Rogers, Life Sketches of Orson Spencer and Others, and History of 80
