Weber's Viking Geologist: The Life of Professor John G. Lind
University Archives Lower Level (October 2012 - May 2013)
The University Archives is pleased to announce the installation of a new exhibit, "Weber's Viking Geologist: The Life of Professor John G. Lind." Born in Sweden, Lind was one of the first teachers at Weber Stake Academy in 1896, and over the course of his career saw the school change from a small LDS high school to a bustling state college. He was the first faculty member with a Ph.D., and was a polymath who taught geology, physical and natural sciences, and Latin. His Scandinavian heritage led to his nickname, "The Viking," but despite his imposing demeanor, he was a beloved teacher who inspired generations of Weber students.

Photographs by Kevin Mikkelsen
Stewart Library, Middle Level (Ongoing Exhibit)
Kevin Mikkelsen resides in North Ogden, Utah right at the base of the Wasatch Range. “Besides being a beautiful place to live, North Ogden is the perfect jumping off point in which to reach one of 7 National Parks, all within a 5 hour drive time. As time passes, and new things are seen, more miles are traveled, and more mountains climbed, that love progressively deepens and has become an inspiration in his photographic work. Capturing images through today’s digital and film technology has allowed Kevin to express that inspiration in the form of scenic landscapes and wildlife fine art prints.” We are pleased to have the opportunity to show 13 of Kevin’s beautiful images in the library, his complete works may be viewed by going to: PhotographyOutdoors.com
