Title Page476
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION intentionally never passed the bar, a civic official, legislative clerk and recognized amateur lepidopterist and botanist. His ever-present interest in nature, in fact, is seen in the scientific names of two plants unique to the Mountain States: Alium Diehili, which he discovered in Provo Canyon, and Astragalus Diehili, found on the plateaus of eastern Utah. Only a few newspapermen in the history of this or any other state are similarly-commemorated, one of them Frank A. Beckwith of the m Millard County Chronicle for a trilobite discovered near Delta. Diehl's never-sated curiosity prompted him to travel from Alaska to Central America in company with Professor Marcus E. Jones, a University of Utah botanist. And his journalistic quests took him to such then-epic, but far removed, news sources as the historic opening of the Panama Canal. Though in his declining years he earned but slim sustenance as a printer in a depression-ravaged town where mining had almost come to a halt, he could look back on a fruitful and rewarding life. A son of Rev. John Diehl, a minister-turned-storekeeper, Isaac was born near Ashtabula, Ohio on May 24, 1861. While he was a child, the family moved to Nebraska, where homestead land was plentiful and where the elder Diehls would live out their lives. Isaac studied at the University of Nebraska as a young man, writing for the school newspaper and debating the careers of law and journalism. For a time it appeared he had rejected both, as he learned the telegraph key and later became the first telephone operator in Lincoln, Nebraska. His interest in that still-new form of communication led him to become manager of the exchange in Plattsmouth, Nebraska, where his enthusiasm and knowledge revived a system its dissatisfied patrons had almost totally deserted. 476
