Custody History

After concluding its business, the Weber County Centennial Committee transferred its administrative records to the state Centennial Commission. The Centennial Commission subsequently deposited its accumulated records with the Utah Historical Society, which in 1949 was designated by Governor J. Bracken Lee as the official repository for the records of the commission. The newly independent Utah State Archives retained custody of the records following its removal from the Historical Society in 1969.
