Administrative History

The Daughters of Utah Pioneers was organized April 11, 1901 to perpetuate the names and achievements of the pioneers and aid in perfecting in a record of the Utah pioneers.

The Daughters of Utah Pioneers was organized April 11, 1901 under the leadership of Annie M. Taylor Hyde, the daughter of John Taylor, in Salt Lake City. Forty-six women, all of pioneer descent, gathered at her home for the first meeting. At the meeting she stated that she ". . .felt deeply impressed with the importance and desirability of the children of pioneers becoming associated together, in some kind of organization which would have for its object the cementing together in the bonds of friendship and love the descendants" of the early pioneers. The first formal meeting was held September 21, 1901 although the association was not incorporated until April 2, 1925. The constitution of the DUP states that the purpose of the organization is: "to perpetuate the names and achievements of the men, women and children who were the pioneers in founding this commonwealth: by preserving old landmarks, marking historical places, collecting artifacts and histories, establishing a library of historical matter, and securing manuscripts, photographs, maps, and all such data as shall aid in perfecting a record of the Utah pioneers."
