University, Book 3, page 178. ~ ~ ~ ~ In May 1937, in a single acquisition, Brigham Young University took possession of 85 paintings and drawings by Maynard Dixon. Dr. Herald R. Clark, who was at the time dean of the College of Commerce, arranged the purchase with family funds. Given the national recognition that Dixon has received over the intervening 60-plus years, one can't help but admire the adventurous and sensitive nature of this one act. Picture it: a man whose discipline is economics, working in a university whose primary objective at the time was the education of teachers, not only being attracted to the ground-breaking work of a contemporary artist but also negotiating a major acquisition for the university - all within the context of the Great Depression. His action and its effect are most remarkable. Until the time of the transaction, there had been no institutional commitment to acquiring art at Brigham Young University. A few works of art had been given to BY, but no one had ever purchased a group of works for the university, let alone on the scale of this purchase, which focused upon one significant artist. Clearly, Dr. Clark's foresight was inspired. ~ ~ ~ ~ People are very surprised to learn that Brigham Young University owns the largest Dixon collection in the United States and itís quite a wonderful story as to how that came to happen. There was an individual at BYU in the 1930s, by the name of Herald R. Clark, who was dean of the business school, who may have seen some of Dixonís paintings on exhibit in Utah. We really donít know, but what we do know is that he saw, in the St. Louis dispatch, reproductions of the Forgotten Man series and the Maritime Strike series. Herald R. Clark was an economist first and foremost. He was very, very touched by the pathos in these works and took it upon himself to make a personal and unofficial visit to Dixon in San Francisco. Finally tracks him down and the two meet, go to a bar together, Herald R. Clark has milk. I donít know what Dixon had. And they talk about a potential acquisition of the university of some of his art. I do know also that Herald R. Clark had lost money in the crash, many people had, so again he brought a very personal viewÖyou know what, letís not put that in the film because the family might not like that. They were a little, they didnít want to tell me too much about that, and the fact that it was actually somebody in the Clark family that bought the paintings because BYU didnít have money to buy art in the Ď30s. Herald R. Clark was also very interested in bringing culture to BYU. He had a lyceum series that ran for decades and he brought people like Helen Keller, Pearl S. Buck, Robert Frost, Rachmaninov to this campus, kind of a remote campus and so itís not unusual that he would start thinking letís bring some art here, but what art and why Maynard Dixon? Itís because he was so moved by that particular series of the Forgotten Man. So he travels to San Francisco and in a very short amount of time he contracts with him to buy about 85 paintings and drawings that really cover a good bit of Maynardís career, for the sum of $3,700. I always wondered was it because it was 1937 that it was $3,700. He establishes a lifelong correspondence with Maynard Dixon. Theyíre very fond of each other. Their letters back and forth until Maynardís death really, are just full of affection and Herald R. Clark tried to get Maynard Dixon to BYU to talk to the classes in front of his art and it, unfortunately, never happened. Dixon kept trying to come and his failing health prevented that from ever occurring. ~ ~ ~ ~ Herald Ray Clark was born on October 18, 1890 in Farmington, Utah. His parents were Amasa Lyman Clark and Alice Charlotte Steed Clark. Herald was a veteran of World War I. Herald married Mable Hone on June 9, 1915 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Herald R. Clark died on May 24, 1966 in Provo, Utah. His interment, Provo City Cemetery, Utah.

Born in Orem, Utah, August 9, 1903, the son of Clarence LeRoy Clayton and Christina Fugal, he married Olita Melville on June 25, 1930, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Ernest attended Brigham Young Academy, graduating with a BS Degree in education. As a student, he often acted in dramatic productions and played the clarinet in the marching band and the school orchestra. He served an LDS mission in the Eastern States Mission during 1928-29. Following his retirement, he and his wife Olita served a second mission in Kentucky-Tennessee. An active member of the LDS Church his entire life, he served in the bishopric of the Rosecrest Ward in the East Millcreek Stake and was often asked to work in the Church's welfare programs because of his agricultural training and his farm equipment. His first job was teaching school in a one-room school house in McKinnen, Wyoming, a position he always recalled with pleasure. His next teaching assignment was with the Alpine School District in Orem, Utah. During World War II, he was the supervisor of vocational education in Granite School District and worked for Remington Arms as a placement counselor. Following the war, Ernest was in charge of vocational education and later juvenile counseling for that same district until his retirement in 1969. His later years were spent happily farming, traveling, and enjoying his 23 grandchildren and 38 great-grandchildren. In 1996 Ernest and Olita Clayton were presented with a "Citizens of the Year" award by the East Millcreek Lions Club. Ernest is survived by his wife, Olita, three sons and one daughter: James L. Clayton (Gerrie), Connie Clayton Madsen (Frank), Elwood M. Clayton (Leica), all living in Salt Lake City, and Richard M. Clayton (Vicki), from Highland, Utah. A second daughter, Beverly Clayton Brown, died of cancer some years ago. Funeral services were held Monday, April 14, 1997, in the Garden Heights South Ward. Interment, Wasatch Lawn Cemetery. The family requests donations be made to the Savanah Seiter Fund. [Deseret News, Saturday, April 12, 1997]

Byron and Helen Colton

B. Y. Academy High School Graduate, Class of 1900, and BYU Graduate Class of 1904. He was born February 15, 1882 in Provo, Utah. He married Helen Merkley, and they have nine children. He died November 8, 1973 in Vernal, Utah, and is buried in the Maeser Fairview Cemetery near Vernal. ~ ~ ~ ~ BY Academy became Brigham Young University in 1903, located on one square block on University Avenue in Provo, Utah. When Byron Owen Colton was a senior at BYU, he became the senior candidate -- Class of 1904 -- for the first president of the student body, but was defeated by his cousin, Warren A. Colton, a junior who was the candidate of the Class of 1905. Warren had the edge because he was a part-time teacher and therefore a member of the BYU faculty. However, at a December 21, 1903 meeting of the new BYU student body organization, a committee of five students was appointed to head an effort to procure additional land for the campus suitable for athletic and other building purposes. Byron Owen Colton was named Chairman. Apparently most students and faculty felt campus growth was a hopeless cause, but not Byron Colton. On January 11, 1904, Mr. Colton forcefully presented a formal request to the President and members of the Provo City Council, requesting that the City sell its land on Temple Hill to BYU. Through Colton's hard work and leadership that convinced others that this was the best route to follow, this sale was actually accomplished, overcoming much reluctance from many people who believed that an LDS temple should be built there. With the establishment of BYU activities on the Upper Campus, the modern era of the University began, thanks to the right leader being in the right place at the right time. Byron Owen Colton, BY Academy High School Class of 1900 graduate, was the leader who achieved that key breakthrough. ~ ~ ~ ~ Brigham Young University Graduate, Class of 1904. Byron O. Colton.

Academy, Book 2, p. 14. ~ ~ ~ ~ He led a quiet life as farmer and irrigation engineer, and became Water Commissioner of Uintah, Lakefork, Duchesne and Strawberry rivers (1931 through 1961). He was active in Church activities, government, civic and social activities, and never sought recognition for his efforts that positively changed the face and direction of BYU forever.
