Scope and Content

This series contains the 1909 annual report for the commission and notes for the making of it. In the report it addresses the purpose of the commission, related legislation, the commission's goals and what steps they took to reach their goals. The biennial report also contained in this series, examines the same topics as the annual report and covers the years 1911-1913. These reports were made to disclose to the public what the Conservation Commission had been doing for the year(s). The remaining report is a soil survey done by Utah Agricultural College to share their knowledge of the nature of soils in Utah. An outline of a mineral report is also contained in this series.

Processing Note

This series is scheduled under the Utah State Agency General Retention Schedule, schedule 1, item 6, in 1997 and will be permanently retained by the State Archives. This series will not be filmed because high reference is not anticipated so there will not be wear and tear on the papers. This series was processed by Wendy Checketts in 1999. When received by the archives, the reports were in separate series. I have combined them into one series for convenience of the researcher.
