Images in this digital collection represent a portion of the many thousands of photographs taken by the Compton Studio in Brigham City, Utah from 1884 to 1994. Three generations of Comptons operated the Compton Studio creating a remarkable visual record of business, agriculture, education, social activities, and the people of Box Elder County.
The entire collection of over 100,000 original photographic negatives is housed in 653 boxes in USU Libraries' Special Collections and Archives. The inventory for the collection is available online at http://archiveswest.orbiscascade.org/ark:/80444/xv71670. Detailed identifications make this unique collection an especially rich resource for researchers.
Note: Photo identifications are taken from handwritten registers. These identifications may or may not correspond to the person in the photograph depending on who commissioned the image.
