About this collection

The Folklore Society of Utah (FSU) was established in 1958 under the influence and direction of prominent Utah folklorists and scholars of the time, including Juanita Brooks, Olive Woolley Burt, Thomas E. Cheney, Austin E. and Alta S. Fife, Wayland Hand, King Hendricks, Lester A. Hubbard, Hector Lee, Jennings C. Olson, J. Golden Taylor, Louis C. Zucker, and others. FSU promotes and nurtures the study of folklore by collecting, preserving, and interpreting the folklore of Utah and surrounding areas. Beyond collection and preservation, the society makes folklore available both to the public and to scholars by maintaining an archive of the Society, publishing material, and presenting information through an annual meeting, formal lectures, concerts, festivals, events, and gatherings on folklore.

 

This digital collection complements Folk Collection 28, the physical contents of the FSU Collection. The digital collection houses digital materials from the Society from 2012 to the present, including annual meeting agendas, board meeting minutes, video recordings from  annual meetings, and other items that document FSU.
