George Cluff

Class of 1887? Born on April 29th, 1869, George Cluff was a recent graduate from Brigham Young Academy, when he became the second principal of Eastern Arizona College in Thatcher, Arizona. Recognizing a need for the college to grow beyond its one-room building, Cluff was able to move the college into a larger facility in Thatcher (the Tithing Office). The move considerably enhanced the college's ability to teach students. However, the college experienced several financially difficult years. In 1893, there was a stock market crash that led to a general downturn of the economy. The college was not immune to this slowdown, but under Cluff's leadership, the school was able to collect enough donations from community members to keep the school open during four trying years.

Cluff, '93 Com. Graduate." ~ ~ ~ ~ He received a high school diploma in 1893. Source: Students Record of Class Standings B.Y. Academy, Book 1, page 193. ~ ~ ~ ~ He is supposed to have received a diploma in Education and a certificate in Bookkeeping (Accounting)-(see narrative below). ~ ~ ~ ~ Harvey H. Cluff, who became a prominent lawyer and jurist in Provo, is not to be confused with Harvey Harris Cluff, born in 1836, his namesake, who helped to build Provo's New Fort and was a long-time member of the Board of Trustees of BY Academy. This Harvey H. Cluff was born October 24, 1872 in Provo. He was a cousin of BYA Principal and BYU President Benjamin Cluff, Jr. Harvey's parents were Samuel Sampson Cluff and Frances A. Worsley, Mormon pioneers. In addition to Harvey, they had seven children: Henry Cluff, born March 17, 1862; Fannie Cluff (Dave Bonnett), born March 21, 1865; Sarah Jane Cluff, born April 6, 1867; Bessie Cluff, born July 10, 1870; [then Harvey]; Samuel Cluff (Minnie Moyle), born May 15, 1878; Elmo Cluff (Mamie Grain), born September 20, 1880; and Sidney Cluff (Kadie Colvin), born May 1, 1882. ~ ~ ~ ~ On October 11, 1900, Harvey H.

He was given a diploma in education and certificate in accounting at BY Academy in 1893 when he was 23 years of age. He served an LDS mission to the Southern States in the turbulent days of 1895-1898, and returned with a firm resolve to study law. He had worked his way through the Academy when work was there for the asking, and had no doubt as to his ability to "make a go of it" in a college of law. He became an excellent speaker, created a convincing character when acting on the stage, and used stage performances to improve his speech and carriage. He went to law school at Highland Park College in Des Moines, Iowa, obtaining his LLB degree. He was admitted to the Utah Bar in 1902, and to a partnership in Booth & Cluff (Alfred Booth). He remained in this firm until 1909. He was appointed secretary to the State Board of Insanity 1904-1908, 1912-1916. He served as District Attorney for the 4th Judicial District from 1908 to 1912. Harvey was active in politics, being chair of the Republican Utah County Committee for 1917-1920. He was one of Utah's most successful Attorney Generals from 1921 to 1929. In 1929 he formed the firm of Cluff and Cluff in Salt Lake City. The underprivileged and socially unfortunate became a concern for him early in life, and he was appointed a trustee for the State Industrial School in Ogden, as well as for the State School for the Deaf and Blind.

Class of 1930. Aline Coleman. Graduated from Brigham Young High School on Thursday, May 29, 1930. Source: The Evening Herald, Provo, Utah, May 28, 1930. ~ ~ ~ ~ Aline Coleman is listed in the BYH pages of the 1929 BYU Banyan as "Vice-President" but we do not yet know if this was Student Body Vice President, or Senior Class Vice President. She married Virgil J. Smith. ~ ~ ~ ~ Her parents: Jacob Coleman and Allie Smoot, married June 22, 1910 in Provo, Utah. Jacob Coleman was the son of Uriah Coleman and Martha Larsen of Nephi, Utah. Allie Smoot was the daughter of Abraham O. Smoot II and Electa Bullock. Jacob and Allie Coleman had six children, including: Robert Smoot Coleman, born June 13, 1915 in Provo and died February 11, 1920; Aline Coleman Smith [BYH Class of 1929]; Martha Coleman Miner [BYH Class of 1934]; James Smoot Coleman [BYH Class of 1936] (1. Margaret Tate -dec., 2. Ursula Fin); Sherman Smoot Coleman, M.D. (Jane Dalenberg) [BYH Class of 1941~H]; and Genevieve Coleman [BYH Class of 1943] (John) Walker. ~ ~ ~ ~ Aline Coleman Smith, a dance enthusiast, began performing early in her life. After teaching dance at BYU for 10 years, she moved east where she studied with several notable dancers. She taught high school physical education at Granite High School and is an accomplished teacher of Tai Chi as well as a registered nurse. Aline Coleman Smith was singled out by the Brigham Young University Emeritus Association for a Special Recognition Award in 1996. @2003 ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: July 2, 1911 ~ January 9, 2017. Aline Coleman Smith, 105-1/2, beloved mother, wife, aunt, sister, teacher, and sweet-spirited friend to so many, passed away peacefully on January 9th, 2017, surrounded by her loved ones. She was born July 2, 1911 in Provo, Utah to Jacob and Allie Smoot Coleman. She quickly assumed her role as caring eldest child and mother's helper, watching over her siblings throughout their childhoods. Her parents must have had a sense, even in those early years, that Aline would eventually take care of them - which she did for a number of years at the end of their lives. Jacob was a Provo City attorney and very active in local civic affairs throughout his life. Aline's mother, Allie, was the granddaughter of Abraham O. Smoot, mayor of both Salt Lake City and Provo and an ambitious, resourceful administrator in the formative years of BYU. Allie was also the source of Aline's sweet-tempered, generous personality. Aline was the oldest of five children and is survived by her "baby" sister, Genevieve "Jenny" Coleman Walker. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Virgil J. Smith, her son, Jay Coleman Smith, brothers, Dr. James Smoot Coleman and Dr. Sherman Smoot Coleman and sister, Martha Coleman Miner. Aline attended elementary through high school at Brigham Young Training School, where she discovered her lifelong passion for dance. She went on to study Modern Dance with the illustrious early pioneers Ted Shawn and Ruth St. Denis in New York, and with Margaret H'Doubler at the University of Wisconsin. She graduated with high honors from BYU in 1933 with degrees in both Physical Education and Education. Aline was instrumental in founding the dance program at BYU, and continued to teach and choreograph there for 10 years after her graduation. Choreography was her greatest passion, especially the crafting of large ensemble works to classical music. Her younger sister Martha, was an award-winning classical pianist who played for Aline's classes and dances; the two were a marvelous artistic team. Aline would imagine and choreograph dances in her mind as she listened to Martha's playing at home. Aline married Virgil J. Smith in 1933. Their son Jay was born in 1939. Soon after, the family moved to Boise, Idaho, where Aline became very active in the YWCA, developing dance and movement programs for adults. During a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark she fell in love with Danish cross-stitch, needlepoint and petit point. Soon after, she embarked on what was to become a 30-year passion for creating original needlework of her own. These pieces adorn the furniture and walls of her loved ones to this day. Following her husband Virgil's death in 1992, Aline moved to SLC to be closer to her large extended family and childhood friends. For many years, she and her sister, Martha, shared a home in Holladay full of music, art and good humor. In 2006 they moved to Highland Cove, living just down the hall from one another. Throughout her life, Aline was a great reader and avid student of literature and history. Even as her eyesight deteriorated, she continued to enjoy audiobooks - listening to 5 or 6 a week, which her younger sister Jenny supplied - scouring local libraries to keep up with Aline's voracious reading appetite. Aline was also a member of Daughters of Utah Pioneers and Daria Book Club, where she made many lifelong friends. Aline will be especially remembered for her loving, open-hearted generosity and wide- ranging friendships. She remained very close to her extended family and leaves behind a legion of friends at Highland Cove and throughout the region. There will be a small family Graveside Service in Boise, Idaho at a later date. Aline's family would like to especially thank all of her dear friends, the Olpin family, Dr. Margaret Lunt and her nurse Shannon for their love and kindness over the years, and CNS Hospice for their recent care. Memorial donations in honor of Aline may be made to either DSBVI (Utah Blind Center) at 250 North 1950 West Ste. B, SLC, UT 84116-7902 or to the BYU Modern Dance fund at give.byu.edu/aline.
