22 New Collections from the Utah State Archives!
This collection contains two books compiled by the school district to document and commemorate the erection of the School Children’s Constitution and Flag Monument which was funded in part through donations made by school children with local children acting as models for the sculpture. Sealed within the sculpture is a list of every child from every school in the city in 1936 along with what they wanted to be when they grew up.
