1000 Views of 100 Years
Brigham Young University has a rich and varied history. We are fortunate that much of that history has been caught in photographs. As part of the centennial celebrations in 1975 the university commissioned Edwin Butterworth, Jr. to compile a pictorial history of the first one hundred years of Brigham Young University. These images capture life at the university and allow us a visual glimpse at what life was like at Brigham Young University between 1875 and 1975. Here is a sample of the images from Brigham Young University: 1000 Views of 100 Years.
