Ruth May Fox

    Episode 48


    In her autobiography, Ruth May Fox wrote of her arrival into the Salt Lake Valley: "At last the long journey was ended. We had pulled up the hill out of Parley's Canyon just as twilight had shrouded the valley. We could still catch a glimpse of the city below, but I confess to some disappointment as I asked, did we come all this way for that?' This, however, was my first and last disappointment." Historian and great-granddaughter Brittany Chapman discusses the life of Ruth May Fox.
