Governors of Utah Digital Collection
Some records may not be available for research from June 1-11, 2015 due to equipment upgrades. Please consider visiting beforehand or contacting the Research Center for more information.
The Governor is the chief administrative officer of the state and the sole official entity of communication between the government of this state and the government of any other state and of the United States. As a result, Governors' papers are a valuable historical resource. They are biographical accounts of a Governor's term and a chronicle of statewide and national events. They shed light on Utah's involvement in and reaction to national issues and problems specific to Utah, with events and responses during the time of interest. In short, these series record Utah's history within the state and nation.
