People Of Draper 1849-1932 Volume 3


Volume Three: “People of Draper 1849-1932” is dedicated to all those who have submitted histories for this volume. This book, “People of Draper 1849-1932” is funded in part by the taxpayers of Salt Lake County through the 1/10th of 1 sales tax for Zoo, Arts, & Parks programs.


The Draper Historical Committee, organized by the Draper Historical Society in the autumn of 1994, began writing a sesquicentennial history of Draper. People of Draper, Volume 1,1849-1924, was released in 1999. Volume Two, Sivogah to Draper City, 1849-1977, was released in 2001, and Volume Three, this volume, released fall of 2004. This special group of volunteers, and others, who will be honored by present and future generations, have skillfully guided Draper history to its present status. A well deserved expression of gratitude and appreciation is extended for the vision and work of the following Volume Three committee members (listed alphabetically): Marjorie Smith Clements, Enid Enniss, Noel H. Enniss, Clairon Huff, Luana Guymon, Paul J. Smith.

Due to the overwhelming response of more than four hundred family and individual histories submitted to the committee, the number of histories far exceeded ane book publication. To solve this problem, for Volume the committee elected to include only histories prior to and including 1924, a time span of seventy-five years, beginning with the first settler in Draper, or South Willow Creek in 1849. This volume includes all histories submitted since that first publication, and chronicles those “People of Draper” from 1849-1932.
