(January 7, 1899-October 20, 1996)
Born in Price, Lee was involved in the real estate and the insurance business and served as mayor of Price during 1936-47. As governor, Lee gained national attention almost immediately because of his battle against the federal income tax and his ideas on economy in state government. Under his direction, Utah maintained its debt-free status while increasing appropriations for state building and highway construction that had been deferred during the depression and World War II. He later served as mayor of Salt Lake City during 1959-71.
