Brigham Young High School, Class of 1909

Research performed by Scott Cowley has identified 32 Brigham Young High School graduates. Only one has been found receiving a Commercial Diploma, where normally 10-20 Commercial graduates would be found, so at least this portion of the class may still be missing.

A famous 1909 photo shows 20 BYH Commercial students wearing identical outfits, with a large "C" on each jersey. A review of the roster shows that 14 of those pictured graduated with a Commercial Diploma in 1911. One graduated in 1910, and one graduated in 1910 and in 1911. That leaves five unknown. They have been listed with the Class of 1909 with a question mark. They include: Florence Bee, Eva Page (Wanlass), Deloss Paxman, Leon Neuren, and Cyril Duffin.

One additional BYH student, Reuben W. Radmall, has also been listed with a question mark, until further research can be done to discover his actual BYH class year.

Wife of Henry Aldous Dixon, President of Utah State Agricultural College, from August 1953 to December 1954. Lucile Knowlden was born in Provo on December 9, 1891. Her father was Robert Edwin Knowlden; her mother, Mable Twelves.

She especially enjoyed African violets and while she lived on campus the university horticulture group regularly brought her fresh flowers. In gathering information for her book on the president's house, Alice Chase learned from Mrs. Dixon that her "heart sank at the prospect of moving into" the president's home. The Dixon's had at that time a new house in Ogden. The president's house had purportedly been neglected and the trustees decided to "recondition" the house rather than build a new house. Despite her initial impressions, Lucile told Alice that "living there proved to be a delightful experience." Lucile died on December 13, 1986 in Ogden. She was 95 years old.

KAYSVILLE - She was a beautiful, charming, caring and gracious person who personified achieving the American dream, beginning her career an a high school teacher and ending it as Chairman of the Board of one of the Intermountain area's most successful companies, Clover Club Foods, a company she and her husband, Hod, built together. Clover J. Sanders died Friday, December 24, 1999, at the age of 96. She was born in 1903 in Price, Utah, to Charles Robert Johnson and Deseret Aldridge Johnson. After living in Price and Huntington, the family moved to Provo in 1908, where her father received his Music Diploma in the BYH Class of 1909 and taught music at what was then Brigham Young Academy [actually it was Brigham Young High School -- Brigham Young Academy ceased to exist in 1903]. Because of his association with the school, Clover was allowed to attend and began her education at the age of 5 at the BYA kindergarten [BYU Laboratory Elementary School]. In 1916, the family moved to Logan and Clover graduated from Logan High School. At the age of 16, she enrolled at Utah State Agricultural College (now Utah State University) where she majored in music, drama and physical education. In 1923, she was the first student - male or female- to graduate in Utah State's physical education program. She taught at Morgan High School, and it was there that she renewed a friendship with a man she had met at Utah State, Newell V. "Hod" Sanders. The couple was married on May 28, 1928. After working at various jobs In New York and California, the couple decided they wanted to have their own business; so in 1938, armed with little more than enthusiasm, Hod and Clover moved back to Hod's home town of Kaysville with one simple desire to work for themselves. Taking their life savings, experiences learned while working at other snack food companies, and with a few pieces of second-hand equipment, they rented a "back room" in a vacant warehouse in Kaysville, and Clover Club Potato Chips was born. It was Clover's job to do the cooking. Hod delivered the chips door-to-door and store-to-store hoping to sell enough to be able to buy the potatoes they needed for the next day's batch. When a shortage of money became critical, Clover sold her prize piano to keep the fledgling company going. From this humble beginning, Clover Club grew into a major snack food company with distribution in 11 Western states. Clover credits the success on hard work, determination, and always providing a quality product. Hod died in 1980 and Clover assumed the responsibilities of Chairman of the Board, a position she maintained until 1983, when the company was acquired by Borden, Inc. Over the years, Clover has been active in many civic and church activities, including the development of the LeConte Stewart Art Gallery in Kaysville. She was one of the first two women to serve on the Davis County Health Board. And in 1989, at the age of 87, she worked to create a community center for the older citizens of Kaysville. She in survived by two sons, Robert V. (Gail), Salt Lake City; John N. (Sheryl), Bozeman, Montana; seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by a son, Barr; two brothers, Reed and Lund; and a sister, Dixie. Graveside services were held Wednesday, December 29, 1999 in Kaysville. She was truly a remarkable woman, and she believed that (in her own words) "Life is what happens when you're planning something else." The family suggests donations to the Kaysville Autumn Glow Senior Citizens Center, 81 E., Center, Kaysville, Utah, 84037. [Published in the Deseret News, Sunday, December 26, 1999.]
