Scope and Content

This series consists of speeches given by Utah Governor George Henry Dern, both as a member of the Utah Senate (1914-1922) and as governor of the state (1925-1933). Dern was a noted orator, and as a member of the Democratic Party he often gave voice to a number of progressive causes. Many of the speeches in this series were delivered at Democratic conventions, or to Democratic groups, and help articulate Dern's political philosophy. A majority of the speeches in this series were delivered by Governor Dern as ambassador for the state, often to trade groups, or at conventions. Other important issues addressed by the speeches in this series include Utah's position on developing Colorado River resources, winter time air pollution in Salt Lake City, and the construction of the Mormon Battalion Monument on the grounds of Capitol Hill. Researchers should also note the presence of one file folder containing personal speeches delivered by Dern as a member of the Freemason fraternal organization.
