Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION To develop more business, the Springville Independent was purchased in August, 1922 from Don C. Johnson, together with its facilities. The Gaisfords changed its name to the Springville Beacon, but after one year's operation the venture proved unprofitable and the paper was sold to the Provo Herald and the equipment disposed of to the Western Newspaper Union. At this second crucial point, Lorenzo W. Gaisford offered to sell the American Fork Citizen and the Pleasant Grove Review, together with the plant at American Fork. The offer was accepted and the Gaisford family on November 24, 1923 embarked on a dual publication venture. And, incidentally, a long period of monthly payments to the lending institution, the Bank of American Fork. Juggling the machinery of the plant at Lehi and the major one at American Fork, the Gaisfords continued their newspaper-printing careers through the next eleven years. Arthur F. Gaisford was still at the helm and then just starting to look forward to retirement. Lorenzo Gaisford and his family had moved to Los Angeles, after the sale of his interests, where he became the owner of apartment houses. Arthur continued to live in Lehi, with Earl Gaisford as his Linotype operator, while A. Frank, Victor and Ted moved to American Fork, where the major operation was conducted. Suffering a severe cold, Arthur had gone home from work and to bed when, on January 22, 1936, he suffered a fatal cerebral hemorrhage. He and his wife, Elizabeth, had lived a full and complete life, making friends wherever they resided. They raised a family of five boys and five girls and for many years made a home for Robert Beverley, who had lost a leg in a railroad accident while employed on the old Saltair Railroad. Through his entire life, Arthur F. Gaisford took an active part in civic and church affairs. He was a member of the Lehi Lions Club. Surviving at the time of this presentation are four sons and five daughters: George A. Gaisford and Mrs. Garnet Rich of Salt Lake City; Mrs. Milton Densley, Midvale; Mrs. Hilton 518
