History - By the 1890s Charles Roscoe Savage was growing old, and the era of the pioneer photographer was coming to an end, aided by the advent of the Kodak camera. But there was one more pioneer photographer — the eccentric artist George Edward Anderson of Springville. A student of Savage, Anderson was never a commercial success. But he was the last of his kind and possessed a rare talent and dedication. He was a traveling photographer, going from one settlement to the next, providing "a service not generally available to the rural folk of Utah."

After being called on an LDS mission to England, Anderson left Utah and was gone seven years, most of which time was spent compiling a comprehensive history of Mormonism in photographs, traveling "without purse or scrip" throughout the Midwest and East—an obsession that alienated him from family and friends. The Anderson negatives have survived several near catastrophes to become the most complete collection of historic Utah/Mormon images available.
