This group of minibiographies is intended to highlight the lives of Utah women and men of diverse backgrounds and accomplishments. The basic criteria for inclusion were that the person's achievements occurred in the 20th century and that he or she had not been featured previously in Beehive History or Utah Historical Quarterly. No living persons are included. No governors of the state or other very well known individuals were selected, nor were notorious characters such as "Big Bill" Haywood chosen. Indeed, the object was to showcase less well known Utahns and those who though widely recognized in their day may be unknown to younger generations. Given such criteria the list of potential subjects was enormous. Every town has its heroes and heroines. Newspaper files reveal hundreds of men and women who made their town, their state, or the world a better, or at least a more interesting, place to live. Several issues of Beehive History could be filled with the life stories of such individuals. Those included here are not necessarily "the top 34," but all contributed to the history of the state. We are richer culturally, scientifically, politically, and socially because of these women and men.
