LDS University Bookplate

By: Ardis E. Parshall - January 09, 2014

The Latter-day Saints University traces its roots to 1886, when it opened as “Salt Lake Academy,” the Salt Lake City branch of the Academy movement that placed LDS high schools in Mormon population centers from Cardston (Canada) to Juarez (Mexico). It eventually occupied a row of buildings across the street from the Salt Lake Temple, on the block where the Church Office Building now stands. It operated until the late 1920s; the sole remnant of the old university now remaining is the LDS Business College, which has modern quarters several blocks away from the school’s original site.

I noticed this bookplate in a volume of Old Testament illustrations, now a part of the collection in the Church History Library.

  1. Speaking as one who works in a library, that is a nice bookplate.
