World Events (8)

1898 · War with the Spanish

Age 2

After the explosion of the USS Maine in the Havana Harbor in Cuba, the United States engaged the Spanish in war. The war was fought on two fronts, one in Cuba, which helped gain their independence, and in the Philippines, which helped the US gain another territory for a time.
1898 · The Ogden Utah Sugar Factory Opens

Age 2

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.
1914 · The American Can Company of Utah Building Complex

Age 18

The American Can Company of Utah Building Complex was built downtown Ogden on 20th and Lincoln Ave. It employed over 450 people and produced millions of cans of food from crops of local farmers. It was closed in 1979 but was added as a Historic Place in 2005 to the National Register. It has also become a headquarters for Amer Sports.

Name Meaning

English, Scottish, and Irish: generally a nickname referring to the color of the hair or complexion, Middle English br(o)un, from Old English brūn or Old French brun. This word is occasionally found in Old English and Old Norse as a personal name or byname. Brun- was also a Germanic name-forming element. Some instances of Old English Brūn as a personal name may therefore be short forms of compound names such as Brūngar, Brūnwine, etc. As a Scottish and Irish name, it sometimes represents a translation of Gaelic Donn. As an American family name, it has absorbed numerous surnames from other languages with the same meaning.
