New Artwork Donation
clear

Visitors of the Logan Library may have noticed that throughout the building we have quite a few excellent art pieces. In addition to these fine pieces, library patrons have also enjoyed the community art wall where novice and experienced artists have displayed their work. We have a proud history of displaying art and are now excited to display a new mural on canvas in the Virginia Hanson Special Collections Room.

The mural is large (24 feet long) and was painted in 1964 by Utah State University Professors Everett C. Thorpe and Harrison T. Groutage, two well-known names in Utah art history. Hoehne, the third name on the mural is currently unknown. The piece depicts various scenes throughout Cache and Rich counties.

Little is known about the history of the piece except that it likely once hung somewhere on campus, was sometime removed and placed in storage, and it hasn't been displayed for decades. Recently the piece was given a new home at the library so the public could once again enjoy the details found in the piece. If you know anything about its history, please let us know, and be sure to come into special collections to view it.

Cache Valley Fallen Officers
clear

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.

In commemoration of this, we remember the officers of the law who have died while serving the citizens of Cache Valley and elsewhere. The following is a list of those that I'm aware of in the Valley:


Officer Willard R. Dahle, Logan City Police Department, died May 4, 1929.

Deputy Alma P. Sorenson, Cache County Sheriff's Office, August 27, 1959.

Officer Edwin L. Edwards, Logan City Police Department, August 27, 1959.

Lieutenant James R. Merrill, Cache County Sheriff's Office, January 5, 1974.

Deputy Charles H. Dickey, Jr., Cache County Sheriff's Office, March 18, 1984.

Logan History Index
clear

Several years ago we began to create an online Logan History Index. As part of this project, we have gradually been entering in the indexes or creating indexes for the various local histories, biographies, genealogies, and other materials in our collection. There are now over 90,000 index listings from 65 different sources. Some of the books have never been indexed before!

Why is this important? We have found a treasure trove of historical facts locked away in these various materials, sometimes extremely difficult to find. We hope that by creating this index researchers will be able to locate valuable pieces of their family and local history.

Come and try it out or volunteer YOUR time to this effort.
