The Utah History Encyclopedia is the first complete history of Utah in encyclopedia form, consisting of
575 articles and over 200 historic photographs

Originally published by the University of Utah Press in 1994.

Edited by Allan Kent Powell, former Public History Coordinator at the Utah State Historical Society.

Funded in part by the Utah Statehood Centennial Commission.

The hard cover book was converted into digital form and re-published as this website as part of the Utah Collections Multimedia Encyclopedia Project.

In the Utah History Encyclopedia, over two hundred contributors write about the individuals, organizations, locations, institutions, and topics important to Utah history. This landmark volume will provide an essential resource for anyone interested in the history of the state.

The authors, who have donated their time to this project as a gift to Utahns for the state's centennial celebration in 1996, comprise nearly all scholars of Utah history working both within and outside the state. For this website, 250 historical photographs from the Utah State Historical Society were researched and displayed in order to enhance the resources available in the original book.
