Brigham Young Academy 1900 Founders Day
1900 - Founder's Day recreates procession

The January 4, 1892 procession was led by LDS Church President Wilford W. Woodruff, riding in a carriage drawn by two white horses. No known photo of this exists, but in 1900 a Founder's Day procession recreated the occasion, paused for this photograph, then entered the building. The original dedication event was reported in the Ogden Standard.
