Things To Do In Logan: Monday 01/23/2012 Events

FORGOTTEN PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD
The exhibit, assembled by Special Collections and Archives Photograph Curator Daniel Davis, explores the history of the Union Pacific Railroad through photographs of A. J. Russell. The exhibit presents several of the well-known and idealized scenes of the railroad’s construction (1868-69) as photographed by Russell while under the commission of the Union Pacific Railroad. In addition to the well-known images, the exhibit presents examples of stereo-views taken by Russell and other photographers that offer a more complete and less sanitized version of the railroad’s history. A reception for the exhibit is planned Feb. 15 in conjunction with a lecture by Davis for the Friends of Merrill-Cazier Library. Where: The Merrill-Cazier Library. When: January 23rd through February 17th, All Day. Cost: Free!
