Herbert Brown Maw
Birth: Mar. 11, 1893
Ogden
Weber County
Utah, USA
Death: Nov. 17, 1990
Salt Lake City
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA

Politician. Governor of Utah from 1941 to 1949. His two terms as Governor were marked by progressive legislation that lowered utility rates, regulated the extraction of mineral ores, and enlarged the state's industrial base. Maw's liberal stance regarding labor and welfare legislation and land reclamation produced much conservative hostility. He attempted to win a third term as Governor in 1948, but was soundly defeated by Republican J. Bracken Lee. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)

You attended the 9th Ward of Liberty Stake when you were a child. I recall as a teenager...when you returned to the ward and spoke in your senior years. It touched me!
