Biographical History

Harry A. Dean (1892-1987) was a professor of music in Utah.

Dean was born on September 17, 1892 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was an active member within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served two missions for the church, the first in 1914, and second in 1955. For both of his missions, he was sent to Samoa and became knowledgable of the language allowing him to translate the church's hymns into the Samoan language. Harry attended Brigham Young University where he studied Music, obtaining both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees. Following this, he taught at several different colleges including Snow College in Ephraim, Utah. He was also known for the many musical compositions which he wrote, many of which may be found in LDS hymn books. Harry married Gladys Cutler on July 28, 1921 and they had seven children together. Harry A. Dean died June 11, 1987 in Provo, Utah.
