1898 · The Ogden Utah Sugar Factory Opens

Age 15

The Ogden Utah Sugar Factory harvested sugar from beets because sugar cane was hard to grow in northern Utah. During World War, it was hard to get sugar beet seeds, so the company started to harvest the seeds of the beets they were using. The Company merged with a factory in Logan to create the Amalgamated Sugar Company which is still operational today.
1909 · A Summer Capitol

Age 26
