Godfrey: despite some controversies, Logan residents have always appreciated culture and education

The Ku Klux Klan once tried to organize in Logan. Elected officials have sometimes been involved in controversies. But in his new book “Logan, Utah: A 150 Year History” author-historian Kenneth Godfrey says Logan residents have always appreciated culture and education. “The president of Harvard University spoke in Logan in the 1880s,” Godfrey said during KVNU’s Crosstalk Show Friday. “William Jennings Bryan spoke in the Tabernacle. There have been philosophers as well. “Logan’s had opportunities all the way along for its citizens to improve their knowledge of the world and listen to some of the world’s greatest performers.” Godfrey wrote the book for the 2009 Logan Sesquicentennial and it has just been released by Watkins Publishers. The book is available only at the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau, 199 North Main, in Logan until November 22. After that date the book will be found at other locations.
