Scope and Content

This series contains photographs (and some negatives and contact sheets), mostly of Governor Rampton at official functions, as well as photographs of Rampton with Lucybeth Rampton. Most of the photographs, with the possible exception of those depicting road dedication ceremonies, were probably taken by photographers other than Rampton's press secretary, such as newspaper photographers, those employed by state or federal agencies, or photographers hired by private companies. The photographs of the road dedication ceremonies seem to have been taken by a photographer hired by the Utah State Road Commission. Significant photographs in this series include documentation of road dedication ceremonies in 1966 and several photographs of Rampton with President Lyndon Johnson. This series also contains photographs of Rampton with Secretary of Commerce John T. Connor, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, and Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare Wilbur J. Cohen, in addition to photographs of Rampton with other governors. Also included in this series are photographs of Rampton and Lucybeth Rampton taken by the "Salt Lake Tribune" and "Deseret News" newspapers.

Arrangement

Chronological by date.

This series is arranged into general groupings: dated photographs, undated portraits of Rampton, undated photographs where photographer is identifiable, undated photographs that are identifiable in part by subject, and undated and unidentifiable photographs.

Research Note
