Scope and Content

This series consists of inmate photographs. Most of the inmates are from the Utah State Prison with few from the Salt Lake Sheriff's Office, the Box Elder Sheriff's Office and the Ogden City Police. The photographs are separated by crime; therefore, this possibly is a study of some sort. Most photographs state the type of crime, the date of incarceration, date of release, physical appearance of prisoner, and place and date of birth.


Arranged alphabetically by crime thereunder alphabetically by prisoner's last name.
