Class of 1950. Ann Greta Ballif. Wildcat Yearbook, Oratory, French Club, Ski Club, Fauvines, Graduation Committee. At BYH: ANN GRETA BALLIF, Later: GRETHE BALLIF PETERSON. Born in Provo, Utah, the youngest of four children, Grethe Ballif grew up in the loving environment of an extended family, with a grandmother and other relatives living just down the street. Her parents: George Smith Ballif and Algie Eggertsen Ballif. She remembers Provo as a small university town where her father, an attorney, was able to be closely involved in her upbringing. Grethe's entire education from grade school to college took place on the Brigham Young University campus. She first attended BYU's Laboratory elementary school, then graduated from BY High School in 1950, then graduated from BYU with a Bachelor degree in History and French. She later did graduate work in Management at Radcliffe College in the Class of 1955 (Harvard's counterpart before women gained admission there). She has also done graduate work at Southern Connecticut State College, Harvard College, and the University of Utah. She married Dr. Chase N. Peterson, a medical doctor who later served as President of the University of Utah from 1983 to 1991. Grethe was instrumental in the founding of The Children’s Justice Centers (CJC) in Utah. Honorary Degree from the University of Utah, June 1991, Doctor of Humane Letters. She enjoys her children and grandchildren. As a result of being called to jury duty in a sexual abuse case, she witnessed what she thought was injustice in the courtroom; specifically the way children were treated. The courtroom environment was frightening to them since they had to face the accused. They were unprepared for what they had to do, and as a result of this and other factors, the jury had to find the father of the child not guilty. Grethe was haunted by the verdict and started consulting with all the professionals from the judge to the social workers. There was a consensus that there must be a better way. After receiving the support of the Governor's office in forming a task force to look into the issue of child abuse and the courts, a new program called the Children's Justice Centers was created. It provides a homelike setting where children who are to testify in child abuse cases are brought in and interviewed by specialists. The interviews are taped and played in the courtroom, so children do not have to confront their accusers in the court setting. The program has made a huge difference in the outcome of child abuse cases. There are now at least 14 CJCs in the state. She was surrounded by great female mentors in her family. Her mother was a community activist who served on the Provo School Board for 25 years and also served in the Utah House of Representative. Her aunt, Esther Peterson, worked as a lobbyist for the AFL-CIO long before women were accepted in the world of labor leadership, and she was later appointed as Consumer Advocate in the Kennedy, Johnson, and Carter Administrations, establishing guidelines for content in all consumer products.

Ariel and Arta Ballif

Faculty & Staff - Honorary. Ariel Smith Ballif, Sr., was born December 9, 1901, in Logan, Utah, the youngest son of Emma Smith and John Lyman Ballif. As a child he moved with his family to Rexburg, Idaho, where he grew up, gaining notoriety as an athlete and a dramatic tenor. In 1925, the same year he was graduated from BYU, he married Arta Romney in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Two years later, he and Arta were called to serve a mission in New Zealand where he served as principal of the LDS Church's Maori Agricultural College. In 1930, the family returned to Idaho where Ariel taught and coached at Medway High School. Despite the pressures of the Great Depression, Ariel and Arta sold their possessions and took their small children to Los Angeles so that he could pursue graduate studies at the University of Southern California. He was awarded a Master of Arts degree in 1937, came to teach in the Department of Sociology at Brigham Young University in 1938, and finished his Ph.D. at USC in 1945. Ariel's lifelong desire was to use his understanding in the service of others. During World War II, he took on a painful government assignment as War Relocation Adjustment Advisor for the Intermountain area. Pursuing his interest in progressive social issues, he served on state committees on aging, marriage counseling, mental health, and regulations governing detention homes, and was the state chairman of the Utah Council on Family Life. He always involved himself in civic responsibilities, including the process of reforming Provo City government in the 1950's. He was elected to the Provo City Council in 1958 and served as interim mayor, 1960-61. He was a member and chairman of the Provo City Planning Commission and Board of Adjustment, member of the Provo City Coordinating Council and Utah County Planning Commission, and president of the Downtown Coaches. From 1972 to 1981 he was a member of the Provo City Senior Citizen Council and served two terms as its chairman. In the late 1970's and 1980's, he was on the Change of Government Committee for Provo City, the Utah County Government Study, and the Provo River Trail Committee. In 1955, Ariel was called again to New Zealand to preside over the LDS mission. Under his stewardship, two stakes were organized, a church college was built, and a temple was built and dedicated. Returning to Provo and BYU, Ariel served as chairman of the Department of Sociology, dean of the BYU summer school, chairman of the athletic council, chairman of the curriculum committee, and foreign student advisor. At BYU, he taught courses in social psychology, community organization, race relations, and marriage and family. In the summer of 1969 Ariel was invited to the Republic of China in Taiwan to study the educational system. He became professor emeritus in 1972. He was a fellow in the American Sociological Association, and an alumnus of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Utah Academy of Science, Arts, and Letters, and the National Association of Foreign Student Advisors. For distinguished scholarship, he has been honored with membership in Phi Kappa Phi and Alpha Kappa Delta. In 1969 Ariel received a Distinguished Alumni Award from Ricks College and in 1976 a Distinguished Service Award from the BYU Alumni Association. He was named Outstanding Man of Provo at the 1983 American Freedom Festival. In 1988, BYU awarded Ariel and Arta a Presidential Citation. In addition to seven years of missionary work in New Zealand, Ariel served his church as a bishop of the Provo Ninth Ward, president of the East Provo Stake, and patriarch in the East Provo, East Sharon, and BYU 9th stakes. He was a sealer in the Salt Lake and Provo temples. From 1961 to 1965 he authored social science lessons for the Relief Society of the Church and also wrote for the MIA manuals. Ariel's devotion to his wife during their more than 67 years of marriage inspired all who saw it. He offered strength and acceptance to everyone he met and never ceased working to make the world a better place. His family finds joy in his legacy of great love, service, respect for truth, and appreciation for the beauty of each day on earth. He was survived by his daughter Maralyn and her husband James U. Lavenstein (of Chicago, Illinois), son Jae and his wife Carma, daughter Bonnie and her husband Robert J. Spanvill (all of Provo), son-in-law John H. Bennett (of Salt Lake City), nineteen grandchildren, and twenty-two great-grandchildren. His wife, son Ariel Jr., daughter Moana, two brothers, and four sisters preceded him in death. Funeral services were held Tuesday, May 16, 1995 in Provo. The family suggests contributions be made to the Brigham Young University Library in the name of Ariel S. Ballif, Sr. [Deseret News, Sunday, May 14, 1995.]

Source: 1949 BYH Graduation Exercises Program. ~ ~ ~ ~ Jae R. Ballif served as Academic Vice President of BYU. His parents: Artemesia Romney and Ariel Smith Ballif, Sr. Jae R. Ballif, BYU Professor of Physics, 1962-95. In nominating Jae R. Ballif to receive a 1999 BYU Alumni Distinguished Service Award, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, LDS apostle and former BYU president, wrote only one sentence: He has done everything! Doing everything means Ballif has been Student Body President and university Provost, star fullback and popular physics professor. His connection with BYU extends through much of his life--his father was a popular BYU professor, and Ballif attended Brigham Young High School, where he was Student Body President and played football, basketball, baseball, and track. He came to BYU on a basketball scholarship in 1949, but he chose to play football instead and he became co-captain of the team and was an all-conference and honorable mention All-American fullback. He was also the cadet commander of the 1,700 students in the BYU ROTC program. He and his mother finished their undergraduate degrees together in 1953. After military service took him to Japan and graduate study took him to Los Angeles, Ballif returned to Provo as a professor of physics. During his 33 years at BYU, he was the founding dean of the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Administrative Vice President, and Provost and Academic Vice President. But to those in his classes, he was a beloved teacher. He has a great personal warmth and magnetism, says physics professor Grant W. Mason. When you go to talk to him, you feel like you are his best friend and always have been. Mason says such an attribute served Ballif well in the classroom and in his leadership positions. He was loved by people and was therefore able to motivate them. The Ballif teaching style facilitated student involvement. In the large physics classes he taught (Physics 100 and Physical Science 100), he employed innovative methods and interesting demonstrations. Long before it became popular in the education community, he was instituting self-pacing programs for slower students. His method for teaching basic physics emphasized concepts when a mathematical approach was the norm. This conceptual philosophy was later integrated into the textbook, which he co-authored, and course structure for Physical Science 100. He received the Karl G. Maeser Distinguished Teaching Award in 1972 and a Karl G. Maeser Professorship in General Education in 1994. Website 1: Website 2: @2010

Author of novel, "A Quality Lacking". A former writer with United Press International and a former long-time member of the MIA General Board and of the Relief Society General Board. Dramatist, "Melt Down Your Pewter." ~ ~ ~ ~ NEWS ARTICLE: EX-NEWS REPORTER MOANA BENNETT DIES. Former Deseret News reporter Moana Ballif Bennett, 60, died of cancer in her Salt Lake City home on April 12, 1988. Mrs. Bennett's journalism career included four years as a Provo-based reporter with the Deseret News between 1941 and 1945 and four summers as a staff correspondent with the United Press in Salt Lake City. She later worked as a public relations assistant for U.S. Steel from 1949 to 1953. In 1974, she was named a special consultant to the press relations division of the Public Communications Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mrs. Bennett earned a degree in journalism with a minor in sociology from Brigham Young University in 1949. While attending BYU, she was editor of the student newspaper and student body secretary. She was also named "Most Efficient Student." She was on the General Board of the Young Women's Mutual Improvement Association for 18 years, serving much of that time as co-chairwoman of the organization's drama committee. In 1978, Mrs. Bennett wrote and directed an LDS pageant, "Because of Elizabeth," that was performed at the dedication of the Nauvoo Monument to Women in Nauvoo, Ill. She served on the board of the Davis County Mental Health Association and as president of the Oakridge Elementary School PTA. She represented the LDS Church on the Board of Utah Issues. Funeral services were held on April 18, 1988 in the Mount Olympus North Stake Center, 4176 Adonis Drive (3930 East). Interment, Larkin Sunset Lawn Cemetery. [Deseret News, April 15, 1988] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER HUSBAND'S OBITUARY: John Harper Bennett died September 24, 2016, at the age of ninety. Born March 12, 1926, in London, England, to Emily Higgs and Harold Harper Bennett, he was the eldest of eight children. John grew up in the Gilmer Park neighborhood of Salt Lake City, attending Emerson and Roosevelt schools and graduating from East High School in 1943. After his freshman year at the University of Utah, he was drafted into the U.S. Navy, trained as a quartermaster (navigation specialist), joined the last class of the Motor Torpedo Boat Squadrons Training Center in Rhode Island, and served in the Philippines at the tail end of World War II. Discharged in 1946, John returned to school and then entered the California LDS Mission, where he served “without purse or scrip” under President Oscar W. McConkie. Those who know him find it hard to imagine John knocking on strangers’ doors asking for dinner and a place to sleep. John met Moana Ballif at his sister Elen’s wedding reception. He fell in love with the young reporter and BYU graduate and married her on May 22, 1951. He said, “She was a much better person than I — consistently wonderful. She never made a single error, except perhaps in marrying me.” They spent their honeymoon in Colorado Springs, where John played in a tennis tournament and Moana cheered. In 1953, John finished a degree in Philosophy at the University of Utah — not because he believed it would get him a job but because he hoped it would teach him to think. He had worked part-time at Bennett Motors and continued in the sales department after graduation. In 1957, he moved to the leasing department, which was eventually spun off as a separate business. In time, he became president of Bennett Leasing Company and a respected national leader in the industry, serving as vice-president, president, and then chairman of the board of the American Automotive Leasing Association, and on boards and committees of several other trade organizations. The game of squash racquets was his grand passion and became his second career. Following the example of his father, John took up squash at the age of forty and never looked back. He admired the ethical and cerebral demands of the game. In a fast, aggressive, chess-like match, each player has an absolute duty to get out of his opponent’s way. He was state champion in Utah, Colorado, and California; won Intermountain and Pacific Coast regional titles; and claimed the 1983 55+ Softball National Championship. Including hardball, softball, and doubles, he participated in 63 nationals. John served as president of the Utah Squash Association, leading the effort to build an exhibition court at the Deseret Gymnasium and bringing the North American Open to Salt Lake City in 1980. When the Gym closed, John opened the Chancellor Racquets Club, with two converted racquetball courts, and operated it for nine years. In 1999, with partners including his son Craig, he launched Squashworks, a squash-only facility with six international courts that has hosted twelve professional tournaments. In 2012, he was named to the U.S. Squash Grand Masters Honor Roll. A classic introvert, John nevertheless enjoyed close associations with family and friends, including his siblings and members of the Garden Park and East High study groups, with whom he met regularly for over 65 years. He had squash friends all over the country and enjoyed seeing them at tournaments. In his last years, although he mourned the loss of his ability to play, he loved being at Squashworks, watching squash, talking with members, reading the paper, and enjoying the sounds and energy of the club. He took special pleasure in watching his grandchildren play, hoping that his love for the game would continue in generations to come. Besides squash, he loved jazz, theatre, road trips, model cars, and BYU sports. He was a committed member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many capacities over his lifetime. His favorite assignment was teaching Gospel Doctrine. Together John and Moana raised six children, two daughters and four sons, in a loving home full of her goodness and his humor, mixed with books, sports, debates, service, faith, and mutual respect. After Moana’s death in 1988, and through many losses and reversals, he remained the center of their family circle. His legacy is integrity, courage, and an astounding optimism in the face of adversity. His dry self-deprecating wit and concise wisdom are already deeply missed. He is survived by his children and their spouses: Heather (Kevin Hanson), John (Lorraine), Brandon (Virginia Vierra), Marc (Shelley), Craig (Eden), and Shannon a.k.a. Shaz (Jean-Pierre Caner); fourteen grandchildren (and three spouses); three great-grandchildren; two brothers, Michael and Stephen; and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins. His wife, parents, four sisters, and one brother preceded him in death. Funeral services were held on Monday, October 3, 2016, in the Garden Park Ward, 1150 East Yale Avenue. Interment, Larkin Sunset Lawn, 2350 East 1300 South. Instead of flowers, John requested that his friends play squash! Source. @Oct 2016
