Description Dear Ellen 1912. No biographical sketches or obituary have been found for Alice Young Clawson. Emily Young Clawson was among the daughters of Brigham Young associated with the founding of the Young Ladies' Mutual Improvement Association. See Susa Young Gates, History of the Young Ladies' Mutual Improvement Association (Salt Lake City: Deseret News, 1911), page 14, and photograph, opposite page 14. Emily Young Clawson's obituary appeared in the Deseret News, March 20, 1926. The role of the Clawson family in drama in Utah and the Salt Lake Theatre is told in George D. Pyper, The Romance of an Old Playhouse (Salt Lake City, 1928); Ila Fisher Maughan, Pioneer Theatre in the Desert (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Company, 1961); "History of Drama in the West," Heart Throbs of the West (Salt Lake City: Daughters of Utah Pioneers), volume 4 (1943), pages 77-116; and William J. VIcNiff, Heaven on Earth: A Planned Mormon Society (Oxford, Ohio: The Mississippi Valley Press, 1940; reprint ed., Philadelphia; Porcupine Press, Inc., 1972), chapter 6. A description of Hiram B. Clawson's home appears in William Hepworth Dixon, New America (Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott and Company, 1867), page 138. "Clawson Home Sold," Deseret News, April 3, 1903, refers to the home on the southeast corner of Third East and East South Temple streets. The history of house occupancy has not been traced for this study. It is known, though, through an 1884 reference that each of Hiram's wives then had her own home. It is also known that Ellen had a home just north of the Social Hall on First East (South State Street), a half-block north of the Salt Lake Theatre. Hiram addressed a telegram to Ellen, January i, 1889, at Twenty-two First East Street (South State Street today). Hiram died at his home at Thirty-eight Fifth East Street. The sources for the life of Ellen Sophronia Pratt McGary are in the Addison Pratt Family Papers. Included in the col- 82
