Joseph Don Carlos Young Veteran Architect Passes

A rather reticent and dignified old gentleman, who seemed to be a better listener than talker, was Joseph Don Carlos Young, the last of 26 sons born to the founder of this commonwealth. He was an architect of practical ideas and artistic talent who designed many structures of merit in the city of his nativity. Had he done nothing else, the imposing church office building of classic contours and solid simplicity, located on East South Temple Street, will stand through many generations as a testimonial to his genius and a monument to his memory.

Don Carlos, as he was known to intimate friends and associates, sought neither fame nor fortune, neither official title nor popular acclaim; in a quiet but earnest way he served his church and did his humble part in the community. With Ecclesiastes, the preacher, he might have expressed his ambition in these words: "Remove far from me vanity and lies; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me." He lived to see, in the lessening distance ahead, the 84th milestone of his long and uneventful journey through life, but he was weary and lay down to await the inevitable end, which came slowly after a lingering illness.
