He was a highly respected craftsman and teacher. His enthusiasm and dedication to vocational education and his "never-say-die" attitude were instrumental in getting the Central Utah Vocational School started. However, the pressures and problems that occurred during the war production training years were a great burden to Hyrum and this caused his health to deteriorate. He went on paid leave in 1944. In his place, Lorenzo E. Peterson served for a short while as the Acting Director but he, too, left the school, leaving Wilson Sorenson, the treasurer and purchasing agent, to take over in his place.; portraits
