Theodore and Eleanor Dedrickson

Class of 1890? Theodore Dahl Dedrickson was born August 1, 1871 in Spanish Fork, Utah. He died April 22, 1940 in Spanish Fork, Utah, and was buried April 24, 1940 in Spanish Fork, Utah. Theodore married Eleanor Braithwaite on February 16, 1898 in Manti, Sanpete, Utah. Theodore's parents joined the church in Iceland and Denmark and traveled to Utah. ~ ~ ~ ~ [The following narrative was written by his daughter, Alta] Dad usually cooked breakfast and got us ready for school. He worked split shifts at the Drug Store and enjoyed taking care of the children and their needs. We loved him, dearly. He was such fun and we made a game of everything working together, to get our chores done. We laugh a lot... Dad, because of his feet, was not able to do heavy work and a lot of walking. He was born with two club feet and must have found this somewhat of a handicap in many ways. He attended school in Spanish Fork and at Brigham Young Academy. Here, he studied pharmacy and so went into the drug business as a young man. Many years later, when I attended Brigham Young University myself [1921-1924] President George H. Brimhall called me to his office one day, and told me about my father being a student there. He told me what a splendid student he was and what a proud heritage I had to live up to. He said he also knew Grandfather Dedrickson and his work in the church. I shall always cherish that visit... Then there was the day when papa brought home a new-angled invention called an automobile. It was made by Henry Ford and called his Model T. What a thrill!! We all loaded in and went clear to Provo to see Barnum and Bailey's big three-ring circus. There were real elephants, monkeys and clowns. The parade was coming down Main Street and we were parked so we could see. The clown ran over and started counting us out loud and threw his hands in the air and yelled "poor papa." This was the only car in town, except Dr. Warner, we were quite a novelty. Everyone would stop, look and listen. Some of the older generation wondered what this world was coming to... They had the following children: 1. Gilbert DEDRICKSON was born 18 Jun 1899 and died 16 Mar 1991. 2. Hazel La von DEDRICKSON was born 2 Mar 1901 and died 11 Sep 1990. 3. Royal DEDRICKSON was born 12 May 1903 and died 8 Mar 1982. 4. Ruth DEDRICKSON was born 12 May 1903 and died 17 Apr 1982. 5. Alden Robert DEDRICKSON was born 12 Apr 1907 in Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah. He died 9 Aug 1926 in Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah and was buried in Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah. Alden Dedrickson, 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Dedrickson, died Monday night at 11 o'clock after a brief illness of ptomaine poisoning, brought on, it is thought by eating a hot dog at a lunch counter on the 8th. The youth was taken sick on the 9th, but his condition was not thought to be serious. Doctors were called in on the case and he was thought to be improving until Monday afternoon, when he lapsed into unconsciousness and he died the same evening. 6. Alta Amelia DEDRICKSON was born 12 Apr 1907 and died 12 Jan 1981. 7. Ruby Eleanor DEDRICKSON was born 28 Apr 1910 and died 20 Sep 1990.

George and Lulu Macdonald

Class of 1890. George Aird Macdonald was born to Alexander F. Macdonald and Agnes Aird in 1870 in Provo, Utah. He graduated from Brigham Young Academy in 1890, and taught school for two years in Graham County, Arizona. While there he married Lulu Cluff in 1891. For 13 years he worked as a bookkeeper for a store in Mesa, Arizona, and later engaged in raising livestock. His biographical sketch in James McClintock’s book, Arizona, Vol. III, states that George purchased the plant of the Mesa Milling Company which he operated for three years. George served as the Mormon Church as Maricopa Stake Clerk in Mesa, Arizona, from 1900 to 1907. He was appointed to the public office of Deputy County Treasurer for Maricopa County in 1906, and then was elected County Treasurer in 1911. He served two terms, almost ten years. He was described as “discharging his duties with marked promptness and fidelity, being a most faithful custodian of public funds.” He kept his farm and other interests in Mesa. He was also known for his beautiful handwriting and skill in drawing. After a number of years childlessness, George and Lulu Macdonald began to despair of having children. Lulu went to Mexico, and George was to follow with a prospective polygamous bride, the marriage to be performed by his father, A.F. Macdonald. The other woman backed out of the marriage, but his father A.F. Macdonald promised Lulu that, “For the sacrifice you have made in your feelings in this matter, the Lord will bless you and open your womb and you shall have children.” The blessing was literally fulfilled when she gave birth to two children, in 1905 and 1908. But they both died in infancy, a source of great sorrow. George Macdonald died in Phoenix in 1931 of heart disease after a two-day illness. Lulu died in 1936. Their children: Rose Macdonald, born and died September 28, 1905; and Aaron Cluff Macdonald, born and died January 21, 1908.

She was only 6 when her father was imprisoned for plural marriage and only 12 when her mother died at the birth of the family's eleventh child. Soon after her mother's death, Alice and a younger sister were sent to Brigham Young Academy in Provo to study under Karl G. Maeser. Alice also attended the new Salt Lake City Academy and Brigham Young College in Logan. In 1889 she returned to Brigham Young Academy and graduated with a high school Normal Diploma in May, 1890. The new principal of the Academy, Benjamin Cluff, Jr., visited with Miss Reynolds shortly after graduation and convinced her to attend the University of Michigan to prepare herself for a teaching opportunity at Brigham Young Academy. Alice Louise Reynolds was among the first Mormon women to go East for university study. After studying in Michigan for two years, she returned to the Academy where she received a Bachelor of Pedagogy degree in 1895. In 1897 she was awarded a Bachelor of Didactics degree by the Church Board of Education, and in 1910 she received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the new Brigham Young University. Miss Reynolds was the first woman to teach college-level courses at BYA and taught all of the literature classes until 1903, when Brigham Young Academy was dissolved, and replaced by Brigham Young High School and Brigham Young University. She was also the first woman to become a full professor at BYU and was an active member of the Utah and National Education Associations. Her thirst for knowledge led her to continue her education throughout her life. She did graduate work at the University of Chicago, Cornell, Berkeley, and Columbia. She also studied in London and Paris. Alice Louise Reynolds was politically active and served as a national Democratic committeewoman and as a delegate to the national convention of the Democratic Party. She also served as a delegate to several women's organizations, including the General Federation of Women's Clubs, the National American Women Suffrage Conventions, and the League of Women Voters at the Pan American Convention. In 1906 a faculty library committee was formed to help establish an adequate library for Brigham Young Academy. Miss Reynolds was a member of the committee from its inception and served as its chair for 19 years. She is especially remembered for her determination to build the library book collection. She headed a fund-raising drive to purchase a major private library held by a Provo judge, J.W.N. Whitecotton. Her active leadership made it possible to obtain the 1,200-volume collection when the school lacked the funds to purchase the books. Later, she organized several campaigns to obtain books and acquire funds which helped the library holdings increase to 100,000 volumes at the time of her death in 1938. Church callings were an important part of her life. She served for 20 years as a member of the Utah Stake Board of the Young Womens Mutual Improvement Association. In 1923 she was called to the General Board of the Relief Society. She became the editor of the Relief Society Magazine, serving in this position for 7 years concurrently with her teaching responsibilities at BYU. She was also instrumental in adding literary lessons to the Relief Society curriculum. Throughout her life Miss Reynolds had many friends and admirers. She was so well respected that former pupils formed a club in her honor. The Alice Louise Reynolds Clubs eventually consisted of 16 official chapters throughout the United States. Alice Louise Reynolds died of cancer on December 5, 1938. In her memory, and in conjunction with the dedication of the Harold B. Lee Library addition in 1977, the Alice Louise Reynolds Room was named as a memorial and permanent tribute to this remarkable teacher and friend of the library. The Alice Louise Reynolds Lecture Series has been established in her honor to feature prominent guest speakers in literature, bibliography, and public service. It is through the generosity of members of the Alice Louise Reynolds Clubs and other Friends of the Library that the endowment for an annual lectureship has been made possible. Unselfish service has a lasting effect on what it touches. The unselfish touch of Alice Louise Reynolds can still be felt at Brigham Young University. The Harold B. Lee Library can trace its beginnings to a committee on which Miss Reynolds served, first as a member and later as chair. She devoted many years to building the dream of a large and comprehensive university library at BYU. Today the Harold B. Lee Library, with almost 3,000,000 volumes, stands as a monument to her dedication and vision. ~ ~ ~ ~ Alice Louise Reynolds was the first woman to be named a full professor at Brigham Young University, in 1911. She is credited with starting what is now the Harold B. Lee Library, and her students organized the Alice Louise Reynolds Reading Club in her name, of which there are 16 active chapters in the United States today. She was a member of the Relief Society General Board and editor of the Relief Society Magazine. She was born in Salt Lake City on April 1, 1873, and died in Provo on Dec. 5, 1938.
