Custodial History
This collection was donated to the L. Tom Perry Special Collections by Vernon Dunn. He received the collection from his friend Dennis Dixon who found them in his father's garage after he passed away. His father is presumed to have received them from his father, who owned Hyland Lumber in Salt Lake City and was also the president of the Salt Lake City Chamber of Commerce. It is thought that he gathered these photographs during his time in office.
