CELEBRATES 100TH ANNIVERSARY
June 28, 1996
They’re probably celebrating out there already, out there being Utah, once known as “Deseret,” the state that was admitted to the Union in 1896. One hundred years ago. For almost 50 years there had been settlement in Utah, but the territory had been at war with the federal government on occasion, and the issue of polygamy (which some of the Mormons preferred to call “plural marriage”) had been a continuing controversy. Utah is in some ways my home state, even though I was brought up in southern Idaho and went through high school in an Idaho town. I was born in Utah, spent my first years there, went to college there and taught there and worked on two newspapers. My towns were Logan and Salt Lake City.
