Custodial History
The antique store asked if we wanted to buy it. We said no, and they said they didn't want it either so we could toss it or keep it. In process of identifying who wrote the letters in the letterpress book, L. Baker telephoned the Bank of Ephraim in Ephraim, Utah, and spoke with Nany Bennett. Ms. Bennett identified both Larsen and Fisher as founders of the Bank. At his request, she sent him a photocopy of "Saga of the Sanpitach" 24:125-138, which is a history of the founding of the bank. Her photocopies are included in the collection.
