A Miracle in Utah Valley: The Story of Utah Technical College, 1941-1982
This book, written by Wilson W. Sorensen in 1985, is a history of the school which is now known as Utah Valley University. Mr. Sorensen began working at then Central Utah Vocational School in 1942 under the direction of Hiram E. Johnson, first president of the school. But in 1946 Mr. Sorensen became the second president, and served in that capacity until 1982!
Using photographs, official documents and records, news stories, and the personal recollections of many people involved with the school over the years, Mr. Sorensen compiled what has become the comprehensive, go-to source for an introduction to the history of Utah Valley University between 1941 and 1982.
