Politician. Governor of Utah from 1933 to 1941. Elected Governor as a Democrat in 1932, Blood's administration covered the difficult years of the Great Depression and his fiscal policy was based on the philosophy of "Pay as you go." During his tenure, a two percent sales tax was adopted and many CCC and WPA projects were acquired for the state. As war clouds gathered, he was among the first political leaders to advocate aid for the Allies.
