BYA Collegiates 411

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

In 1881 Brigham Young Academy's Scientific Department broke new ground by awarding a "collegiate diploma" to James E. Talmage, the first such BYA diploma to be issued. This raised serious questions about whether a secondary school could issue a "collegiate diploma" that would be recognized by colleges. James Talmage and others were required to take extra tests at other colleges before their collegiate credential was accepted.

BYU and the BYU Alumni Association keep records of BYA collegiate-level graduates, but have not in the past kept comprehensive lists of BYA high-school-level graduates. That is why our emphasis in this Directory is on high school graduates. Nevertheless, in this Directory we will also track the relatively small number of BYA students who received BYA collegiate degrees between 1881 to 1903, simply to avoid confusing the two groups, and because there is much overlapping. [We have also added the earliest BYU graduates, 1904 to 1935, for the same reasons.]

Class of 1897 411

BY Academy Class of 1897.

BYA records researched to date [July 2007] yield names of 19 collegiate graduates. [18 B. Pd. degrees -- Bachelor of Pedagogy -- plus 1 diploma in the Commercial College Department].

In addition, The (Provo) Daily Enquirer newspaper reported that BYA awarded 12 Bachelor of Didactics (B. D.) collegiate degrees in May of 1897 -- many of the B. D. degrees were awarded to alumni who had received B. Pd. degrees in previous years. Two additional B. Pd. degrees were mentioned in the Daily Enquirer that do not appear in other sources: Louise Hedquist and Moses C. Davis. This brings the number of collegiate degrees awarded in 1897 to 33.

We do not yet have any list of the BYA high school graduates in 1897. We are missing high school Commercial and Normal seniors, and perhaps other high school categories as well. [May 2008].

We have gathered a small number of additional names from other sources of persons who may be 1897 high school graduates, or more likely, honorary members of the BYA High School Class of 1897. Some very focused research is needed to find and document this high school class.

For an extremely detailed description of Brigham Young Academy and its merits, see a story by Ellen Jakeman in the Deseret News, January 23, 1897.

Succumbed to Quick Consumption -- Married Last January. Mrs. Louise Hedquist Stevenson died at her home in Forest Dale shortly after midnight yesterday morning from an attack of quick consumption in the twenty-fourth year of her age. The death of this beautiful and accomplished young woman is peculiarly sad. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Hedquist and was born in Salt Lake June 2, 1877. When a little girl she removed with her parents to Provo and was there educated in the Brigham Young Academy, graduating from that institution with high honors in the [high school] class of 1896 [and college class of 1897]. For two years she taught in the primary department of the academy and was considered one of the best teachers in the institution. Last January she was led to the altar, a happy bride, by William Y. Stevenson of this city and after the ceremony the young couple established their home at Forest Dale. A few months ago the young bride was attacked by consumption and despite the efforts of husband and friends she withered away like a flower until death came to her relief. Besides her husband the deceased leaves her father, mother, three brothers and a sister. No arrangments have been made for the funeral services, but it is now thought that they will be held on Friday, and it is thought that the interment will be made in Provo [she was actually buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery]. [Salt Lake Herald newspaper, August 22, 1900.] ~ ~ ~ ~ Note: The town of Forest Dale, Utah, existed within Salt Lake City between 1894 and 1912.

While there the school was moved from the old ZCMI warehouse to the New Education Building on 5th North and Academy Avenue [Jan. 1892]. He had the great privilege of studying and teaching under Karl G. Maeser and graduated from Brigham Young Academy by 1889." He graduated in 1885 and taught through 1889. [Bryant Hinckley appears in a photo of the first faculty to serve under Principal Benjamin Cluff in 1892.] Bryant S. Hinckley came to the campus in 1883.

[Of course, someone else may have been elected president in the following years.] Source: (Provo) Daily Enquirer, May 24, 1897. ~ ~ ~ ~ Faculty & Staff. Geology and Education teacher, 1895-1915. Sixth Principal of BY High School from 1904 to 1909. ~ ~ ~ ~ Edwin S. Hinckley was born July 21, 1868, in Cove Fort, Utah, the seventh child of pioneer parents, Ira N. and Adelaide Hinckley. They were known as people of refinement, integrity, religion, family, and education. Edwin S. Hinckley attended Brigham Young Academy in Provo, Utah, and his experiences heightened his interest in higher education. Bryant graduated from BYA high school in 1885 and Edwin in 1886? Edwin was a half brother to Bryant S. Hinckley, and they came to Provo to school together. Edwin married Addie Henry in 1890, and Bryant went on to school in the East and was not married until three years later. Each man remained a teacher and both taught at BYA, Bryant from 1893 to 1900, and Edwin for twenty years. Edwin and his wife Adeline (Addie) Henry Hinckley moved to Ann Arbor, Mich., to pursue additional studies in geology at the University of Michigan; he graduated as class salutatorian. Simultaneously he served a part-time mission. Returning to BYA to teach in 1895, Hinckley served another mission in Colorado. After Brigham Young Academy became BYU in 1903, Hinckley served as Principal of BY High School from 1904 to 1909. For 21 years he inspired students in the classroom, prompting at least one of them, J. Edward Johnson, to write that he "sat as one enchanted all the period he talked to our class, later adding, "One of [his] expressions was, 'Some of you here have it in you to do things which will set waves in motion that will not stop until they break upon the waves of eternity.' "What he taught me in geology has long since ceased to make the slightest difference to me, but the inspiration of his personality and philosophy of life . . . his keen wit and wholesome good humor, continue to fire me with new ambitions." Hinckley, known as the geologist of the university, also served as second counselor, as it was termed then, to BYU president George H. Brimhall. With E.D. Partridge, he laid out the block Y, and was dean of the Church Teachers College. Upon his BYU retirement he served the State Industrial School at Ogden for seven years as superintendent where his management philosophy was "Trust-not punish." He later served as executive director for the Provo City Chamber of Commerce and was a principal participant in major economic development in central Utah. He had served as BYU's Alumni president in 1897 and '98 and continued his affiliation in 1924 and '25 as president a second time. Hinckley died Nov. 15, 1929, leaving a family that included 13 children. In 1954, wanting to express appreciation to their parents, they extended the Hinckley influence by establishing the Edwin Smith Hinckley Scholarship Fund at BYU.
