Gary, I think it became too much sometime before this letterhead was printed. Egads.

Was that Abraham O. Smoot’s company? If so, he got his revenge on you haters when one of the ugliest buildings in the world was named after him. (I’d check to see if I was right, but it would spoil the fun of making this comment.)
As to “Provo City” and when it lost that second word, I don’t know. There are some places in Utah which have managed to keep the “City” including the capital, and Heber City and Brigham City and Cedar City. But Heber seems to be losing it, gradually, if my memories of usage patterns are any good, and sometimes people will refer to the other three without “City” but never in writing.
