Brigham Young University: BYU professor highlights unsung stories from Utah’s rich pioneer history with Intermountain Histories website

Brigham Young University: BYU professor highlights unsung stories from Utah’s rich pioneer history with Intermountain Histories website. “Immigrant communities such as a Jewish settlement in Clarion and a Thai community in Layton may not be as well-known or remembered but still play an important part of Utah’s history — a history rich with diverse stories of faith and perseverance. With the passage of time, however, many of the stories of Utah’s immigrants are on the verge of being lost. BYU history professor and Associate Director of the BYU Redd Center, Brenden W. Rensink, hopes to change that through a new website and mobile app called Intermountain Histories — a platform dedicated to highlighting significant places and people who helped shape the history of the Intermountain West.”
