Since 1897, the Utah Division of State History/Utah State Historical Society has been preserving and sharing Utah's history. Over 275,000 of our photographs, manuscripts, and films are digitized. Additional photographs, manuscripts, books, pamphlets, and other materials are found in our Online Catalog and accessed through the Research Center.
In order to preserve and make available the historical record, State History collects materials from different cultures and time periods. As a result, library materials, such as those presented here, may reflect racist, sexist, misogynistic, and/or xenophobic opinions and attitudes. Users are encouraged to alert staff to antiquated language by clicking on the “Update Item Information” link found under each individual image within the collection.
To order high resolution images, contact the Research Center staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
