Brigham Young University, The Earliest Classes - 1904 to 1935.

In this Alumni Directory, our focus is on the often-forgotten BY Academy senior high school classes between 1877 and 1903, and on the BY High School senior classes from 1904 to 1968.

The academic year 1903-1904 marked the first official year of both Brigham Young University and Brigham Young University High School, after Brigham Young Academy had been dissolved in June 1903 at the end of the 1902-1903 academic year. Since 1876, Brigham Young Academy had always been a secondary school, with a relative handful of "collegiate graduates". The 1904 graduating class, for example, included 5 BYU graduates [13%], and 38 BYHS graduates [87%].

As of November 16, 2008, we have compiled a list of the 745 earliest graduates of Brigham Young University, beginning in 1904 and continuing through 1935 [see below]. Of this total, 291 (39%) had first graduated from high school at Brigham Young Academy or Brigham Young University High School.

Our goal is to list all Brigham Young high school graduates, and we include 454 (61%) collegiate-only names simply to reduce ambiguity. For more convenient searching, try the name index search.

Caine, the young people in Utah schools were able to receive a better background in the study of economics. Beginning in the summer of 1953, selected Utah educators were given scholarships to attend a three-week workshop, the BYU Economic Education Workshop, to learn more about the field of economics. Julia Caine, a teacher at Brigham Young High School, and Dr. A. Smith Pond (Chairman of the Department of Economics from 1952 to 1955, Chairman of the Agricultural Economics Department from 1938 to 1955, Acting Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences from 1955 to 1957, Dean of the Graduate School at the time of his death, April 1, 1959), recognized that there was a need to have classroom teachers in the elementary and secondary schools who understood the various economic principles and concepts. The workshop was held annually from 1953 to 1966, and Julia Caine served as the Assistant Director of the workshop for several years. During workshop sessions, teachers developed projects, unit teaching plans, and resource units which they could use in the schools. As a result, the young people in Utah schools were able to receive a better early education in the study of economics. ~ ~ ~ ~ Caine, Julia Alleman, was born February 27, 1900 in Springville, Utah, and died February 29, 1976 in Provo, Utah, after a long illness.

Hinckley with his decision to stay in school. Discouraged and finding himself among "kids who had not come up the rough way," Anderson had already rolled up his bed to go home when he saw Principal Hinckley. As he explained, "Hinckley listened and without my realizing, kept me an hour. He told stories and listened to mine. In the end he said, 'I'll gamble on you. If you agree to stay till the end of the term, I'm sure you'll come on top.' I went back, unrolled the bed and started over. By three months I was getting As." Nels Anderson's book, Deseret Sands, is his tribute to his teacher.
