factor In his educational career.

He spent his early boyhood working on his father's farm,
and while the plow was being guided by his youthful hands
upturning the fertile soil, his thoughts soared upward in
primitive aspirations toward an ethical ideal of life and
education.

He attended the University of Deseret at the age of 20
and came in direct and intimate contact'with some of Utah's
pioneers of education Karl G. Maeser, John R. Park, J. B.
Toronto and others. Graduating in 1883, he took up the
profession of teaching and his school became noted through-

he finally accumulated an enormous library. Elected county

schools of Salt Lake City.

In 1888 he became a member of the Utah University fac-

Its departments of education. He had the utilitarian idea
of education and worked it out in his everyday life. Regent
of the university four years, he later was placed at the
head of the normal school and it became the School of Edu-
cation. Under his deft direction the training school became
world-famed and the prominent educators of the country
have marveled at its thoroughness and the material it has
turned out of its halls.

In 1899 he did post-graduate work at the University of
Chicago, working with Dr. John Dewey, Colonel Parker and
Dr. Harper. While there he presented many papers that
received marked recognition.

In 1897 the University of Utah conferred upon him the
degree of Master of Didactics, a title well-earned by his
devotion to the university and his marked ability.

Having traveled throughout the United States, attending:
the meetings of the National Education Association, deliver-
ing lectures and presenting papers before national conven-
tions and meetings of the national superintendents, he was
