Utah Square Dance History (JPG)
The June 28, 1973 issue of the Deseret News (a Mormon-owned daily newspaper published in Salt Lake City) contained a supplement on the 22nd National Square Dance Convention. The article on Utah square dance history (on page 2-S) gives interesting information that is hard to find elsewhere. Its authors, Wendell and Celia Taylor, learned to square dance in 1945 from a local teacher, Helen Anderson, who had attended one of Lloyd "Pappy" Shaw's classes at the College of the Pacific in California.
