Description Transcript (43 pages) of interview by Erik Solberg with brothers Larry and Steve Swanson, on June 19, 2007
Abstract This interview is of two brothers talking about their climbing and skiing experiences. Larry (b. 1936) and Steve (b. 1938) both graduated from the University of Minnesota in engineering. Larry came out to Utah to work for Sperry UNIVAC and started climbing with the Wasatch Mountain Club in 1961. Two years later Steve moved to Utah to work in the aerospace industry. Both climbed and were weekend volunteers for the National Ski Patrol for thirty years, working a few years at Solitude and then at Park West (future Canyons Resort). They discuss the origins of their interest in the outdoors, climbing, ski touring and racing, and cycling. Outdoor Recreation Project. Interviewer: Erik Solberg
