Warren & Adelaide Dusenberry

Faculty & Staff. Warren N. Dusenberry. First Principal of BY Academy from fall of 1875 until he resigned in spring of 1876. Dusenberry, Warren Newton (1836-1915) -- also known as Warren N. Dusenberry -- of Provo, Utah County, Utah. Born in 1836. Mayor of Provo, Utah, 1892-93. Died in 1915. The founding of Brigham Young Academy in Provo rather than Salt Lake City was undoubtedly due to the educational endeavors of Warren and Wilson Dusenberry. They had founded two schools, both of which were eminently successful, even though they were financially unstable. Warren was first principal of the Timpanogos Branch of the University of Deseret, which later became the University of Utah. The Provo branch had to close because of lack of financial support by the parent institution. Because of his educational experience it was only natural that Warren was chosen as the first principal of BYA, although he made it clear that he would only serve until a permanent principal was appointed. He preferred to go into the practice of law, where he would not have to push wheelbarrows around to collect produce for tuition. He preferred the tumult and the controversy of the law with its financial security to the peace of education with its financial uncertainty. After serving as principal only a few months, Brigham Young's hand-picked choice for principal, Karl G. Maeser, arrived as his successor. ~ ~ ~ ~ Warren Newton Dusenberry was born on November 1, 1836 in Whitehaven, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania [or Easton, Northhampton, Pennsylvania]. His parents were Mahlon Dusenberry and Aurilla Coray Dusenberry. He married Adelaide Elizabeth Webb on June 18, 1865 in Payson, Utah. She was born on April 11, 1845 in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to Pardon Knapp Webb and Clarissa Jane Lee. He died in 1915. ~ ~ ~ ~ Warren Newton Dusenberry Born November 1, 1836 White Haven, Pennsylvania Died March 31, 1915 (aged 78) Warren Newton Dusenberry (November 1, 1836 March 31, 1915) was the founding principal of Brigham Young Academy in 1876. Dusenberry was only a temporary principal. He also served as County Judge of Utah County and mayor of Provo. Prior to serving as principal of Brigham Young Academy, Dusenberry had been the president of the short-lived Timpanogos Branch of the University of Deseret. Dusenberry was born in White Haven, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. In 1840 he moved with his parents to Pike County, Illinois. Shortly after this his mother joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but his father did not. Due to this, when the majority of the Latter Day Saints moved to Utah the Dusenberry family remained in Illinois. In 1860, they moved to Los Angeles, California and in 1862 Dusenberry moved with his mother, brother Wilson Dusenberry, and two sisters to Provo, Utah Territory, leaving his father and one brother behind in California. Dusenberry worked as a school teacher and merchant in Provo. He also was baptized a member of the LDS Church. In 1867, he went on a mission to the Southern States. From 1870 to 1875 he was head of the University of Deseret's Timpanogos Branch. After being principal of Brigham Young Academy, Dusenberry became the Utah County Prosecutor and the Provo City Attorney. In 1892 Dusenberry was elected mayor of Provo, defeating Reed Smoot.
