Description MANAGERS OVER A HALF-CENTURY association's manager for several years. Jacquetta (Jacque) Nelson, who had been an association staff member since 1953, was named Acting Manager upon the departure of Owen. On August 1, 1970, Harry N. Jefferies, whose background was principally with United and Western Airlines, was named Manager. He remained in the position until June 25, 1971 and was followed from August, 1971 through December, 1973 by Richard M. Buys, a newspaper and television advertising salesman. He resigned to become a publisher and was subsequently involved for varying periods of time with the Wasatch Wave of Heber City, the Pay son Chronicle, the Morgan County News, the Park Record and the Summit County Bee of Coalville. His successors, for terms from one to three years, have been Gary Iverson, 1974-75; T.

It was then relocated to 34 West Broadway, where it remained many years. In June, 1961, in a move under the direction of President J. M. (Jim) Cornwell and Executive Manager Gordon P. Owen and spearheaded by the earlier work of Past President J. Parr Godfrey, the offices were moved to Suite 204, El Paso Natural Gas Building. On June 14, 1973, after much groundwork effort by successive Presidents Howard Stahle and Robert Finney, UPA purchased its own building at 467 East 300 South. Richard M.
