Hendricks, Professor of Economics in the Utah Agricultural College, was born in Lewiston, Utah, November 25, 1881, a son of Brigham A. and Mary Rebecca (Stoddard) Hendricks. His father was born in Salt Lake in 1858 and is a son of William D. Hendricks and a grandson of James Hendricks, who came to Utah with the Mormon Battalion of 1847: William D. Hendricks enlisted in the battalion and returned to Salt Lake in the fall of that year, where both he and his father followed farming. George B. Hendricks acquired his early education in the graded schools of Lewiston and was graduated from the Brigham Young high school with the Class of 1901 [in Logan?]. He afterward entered the Collegiate Department of the Brigham Young College in Logan, Utah, and in 1903 won the Bachelor of Arts degree. He afterward spent three years in the Graduate School of Harvard, where he won his Master of Arts (A. M.) degree in 1908. He was also for one quarter a student in the University of Chicago Law School and he has since devoted his life to the profession of teaching. For three years he was a member of the faculty of the Brigham Young College, Logan, Utah, and was then called to the faculty of the Utah Agricultural College, Logan, Utah, in which he is now Professor of Economics. He was at the head of the Department of Finance and Banking until 1917, when he was made the head of the School of Commerce and Business Administration. ln 1918 he spent about eight months with the Federal Land Bank at Berkeley, acting as appraiser of lands for the Federal Farm Loan Board at Washington, DC. He is at present one of the directors of the Thatcher Brothers Banking Company of Logan, Utah. ln 1912 Professor Hendricks was married to Miss Caroline Armeda McAuster, a daughter of John A. and Clarissa (Snow) McAlister. They have become parents of two children, George B. Hendricks Jr., and Harold Gordon Hendricks. Mr. and Mrs. Hendricks are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and he is a member of the Fortieth Quorum of Seventies.

He then resumed his duties at the Utah Agricultural College and is regarded as one of the able young educators of the State of Utah. Studying thoroughly and broadly along his chosen line, he has become a most efficient professor of economics, readily solving many intricate problems of this character.

Cecil [and Wayne] Pomeroy

Class of 1941 ~ Honorary. Cecil Henrie. She was the sixth child of James Arthur & Agatha Manetta (Prince) Henrie. Cecil was born December 11, 1923 at Panguitch, Utah. She was married on December 21, 1944, at Williams Field near Mesa, Arizona, to Wayne Casto Pomeroy, son of Francis Kimball and Eunice Gaylord (Shurtliff) Pomeroy. He was born March 14, 1923 in Mesa, Arizona. Her early schooling was in Provo grade schools, at Brigham Young High School, and as a special student of Brigham Young University in shorthand and typing. During a vacation trip to Panguitch, Utah, she had the misfortune of breaking her leg and foot, requiring a large cast. It was difficult for her to go from the Lower Campus to the Upper Campus, a few blocks distant, on crutches, and be on time for her classes, but the college students were very kind to her, giving her rides and helping her up the steps, so she was able to continue her work without too much interruption. After the period of this broken leg, she had a serious illness that weakened her heart. Upon advice of the family physician, she was sent to live with her older sister Norma, in Mesa, Arizona. The lower altitude and rest soon made her well and she entered Mesa High School and graduated in 1941. That same year she went with Norma and family to Galveston, Texas, and found employment with the American National Life Insurance Company. The next year she worked for Central Arizona Light & Power Co. in Phoenix. World War II was in full swing and Cecil and her girl friend, Barbara Brimhall, also from Provo, enlisted in the Navy Waves. She was first sent to New York for her boot training and had the opportunity of visiting some historic points of interest while there. The training camp was located in the Bronx. Boot training consisted of 6 weeks indoctrination into the life of the Navy Wave. Her next assignment was in the enlisted Personnel Office of the 12th Naval District in San Francisco, where she was stationed the remainder of her service career. She received an honorable discharge in May, 1946, with the rating of Yeoman 2nd Class. She first met her future husband in Mesa while in high school, and they were married while in the service, at Williams Field, Chandler, near Mesa, Arizona. He was home on convalescent leave from being wounded while on a mission over Vienna, Austria, as a tail gunner, serving with the 15th Bomber group of the Army Air Force. She was the first Wave to be married at this Army Air base. The Army chaplin performed the rites in the presence of a few family members and friends. Both wore their uniforms; she in Navy blue, and he in Army brown. A simple reception was given for them at Normaís home, and the next morning they left for Provo. They both entered Brigham Young University, and Wayne graduated with a B.A. degree. In Sept. 1949 they went to New York City where he enrolled in New York University, to work on his Masterís degree in retailing. After graduation he and Cecil returned to Mesa, where he owned and operated one of the largest and most attractive menís clothing stores in connection with a shoe store operated by his brother. They made a good home in Mesa and were happy in their work and with their two lovely girls: (1.) Cassandra Pomeroy, born 4 Mar. 1948, Provo, Utah. (2.) Wendy Kay Pomeroy, born in Mesa, Arizona.

Valda and Mick Johnson

Class of 1939. Valda Henrie. Girls' Glee Club. Basketball. French Club. Fauvines. Notre Maison. Valda Henrie, fifth child of James Arthur & Agatha Manetta (Prince) Henrie, was born 24 Aug. 1921, Panguitch, Utah. She married 27 May 1942 in Galveston, Galveston Co., Texas, to Allan McClure (Mick) Johnson, son of Allan Dale & Emily Adelle (Hatch) Johnson. He was born 3 Apr. 1921, Nephi, Juab Co., Utah. Valda was a child of 9 when her parents moved from Eugene, Ore., to Provo, Utah. She and Mick (her future husband) were both graduates of Brigham Young High School [BYH Class of 1939] and both attended Brigham Young University for 2 years. During the 2 years she attended the University, Valda worked part-time at Tri-State Lumber Co., as secretary and bookkeeper. In the fall of 1941 she went to Galveston, Texas, to stay with her sister Norma, that she might be near enough to see, on rare occasions, the boy whom she was to marry. She obtained employment with the Butch Tin Manufacturing Company as a file clerk, then transferred to the Quartermasters Corps at Ft. Crockett, Galveston, again as file clerk. Both positions were important assignments, as the files were in a confused and disorderly condition, so much so that they were practically useless to the management and personnel. Valda devised a new filing system in both offices which made the records more accessible for the companies. At Ft. Crockett she was the only woman employee. Her desk was in the center of a large room with an enclosure, and the men were at desks all around her. In December 1941 war was declared, and restrictions on officers marrying were removed. Valda and Mick were married the following May (1942) at Galveston, the same day he graduated from Corpus Christie, a 2nd Lt. in the Marine Corps, as a fighter pilot. They were able to spend leave in Utah before reporting for duty in San Diego, California. While they were in Utah they had their marriage solemnized in the Salt Lake L.D.S. Temple. They were in San Diego about 6 weeks when Mick received his overseas duty and was shipped to Guadalcanal, in the Solomon Islands. Later on in the war, pilots were not sent into combat until they had received considerably more training, after their graduation from officers training school. Mick was at Guadalcanal during the turning point of the war. Until the Marines landed, the Japanese were in full control of the battle. At no time were they more than a few hundred yards from the so-called air field (a field of grass pitted with bomb craters), firing on the planes as they tried to take off. Some were shot down at the end of the runway before they had barely left the ground. Guns were issued to the pilots for hand-to-hand fighting the night the enemy was decisively turned back, and from then on the Japanese forces were on the defensive. Mick was overseas about 5 months with little food other than Japanese hardtack, a thin, dry, supposedly nutritional wafer, and coffee, most of the time. The Japanese were strafing and bombing through the day, and the ships were shelling throughout the night. There were few parallels to the jungle and terrors of Guadalcanal. While Mick was overseas, Valda lived with her parents in Provo and worked at the Tri-State Lumber Co. as secretary and bookkeeper. After a monthís leave, Mick was stationed in San Diego and then at the Marine Base at El Toro. They had a lovely apartment overlooking the Pacific, at the resort town of Laguna Beach, until Mick was again sent overseas to some Pacific islands considerably north of Guadalcanal. He was gone only a few months when a doctor had him returned to the States because of migrane headaches, the severity of which seemed to have increased after he had cracked up in an airplane accident on Guadalcanal (suffering lapses of memory for about two weeks) and another airplane accident which happened in Hawaii. He was not grounded, however, and was stationed again at El Toro after hospital routines in Hawaii and San Diego. Their first child was 5 months old before he became acquainted with his father. Valda was in Mesa, Arizona with her sister Norma, when Mick called from San Diego, on his return from the Pacific area. She and the baby joined him and remained there until he was sent to Atlanta, Georgia, for further training in instrument flying. Months were spent in that field before they returned again to the Marine Base at El Toro. They were unable to find suitable living quarters off the base and were obliged to buy a home in Costa Mesa, located half-way between Balboa Beach and Santa Ana, Calif. While at this base Mick received his promotion to Major. At the close of the war, they sold the home at Costa Mesa. They now had 2 sons, and moved back to Provo, where they bought another home and Mick again entered Brigham Young University to obtain his degree. After his graduation, he worked a short time at Geneva Steel Co. at Orem before going into the lumber business with his father, the ďUtah Valley Builders Supply Co.Ē located at Orem. They built a home in a then semi-rural subdivision just out of Provo, in Edgemont. Both Valda and Mick have been faithful Church members. Mick has served as president and teacher of the Elders Quorum, and in the Stake M.I.A. as Junior M Menís leader. Valda has been affiliated with the Primary organization for many years. She took her children along with her and they learned the rudiments of religion at an early age. They had 5 children: (1. ) Allan McClure Johnson Jr., b. 24 Nov. 1943, Provo. (2.) James Arthur Johnson, b 15 May 1945, Santa Marguerita Ranch, near Oceanside, California. (3.) Jerald Henrie Johnson, b. 27 May 1947, Provo. (4.) Val Henrie Johnson, b. 24 Aug. 1948, Provo. (5. ) Elizabeth Ann Johnson, b. 20 Jan. 1953, Provo.

Vira and Frederick Johnson

Class of 1935. Vira Henrie. [Female.] Vira came to B. Y. High School from Panguitch, Utah. ~ ~ ~ ~ Her BYH graduation date confirmed in graduating class list, Salt Lake Telegram, May 7, 1935, p. 14 ~ ~ ~ ~ Vira Henrie was the the fourth child of Jeddie Nephi & Hilda Vilate (Prince) Henrie. She was born in the 1910s in Panguitch [baptized in the 1920s, endowed and sealed to her husband in the 1930s]. She married in the 1930s, (Manti L.D.S. Temple), to Fredrick Eldredge Johnson, son of Wallace & Winifred (Eldredge) Johnson. He was born in the 1910s, Panguitch, Utah and he died in the 1950s, at San Diego, California, and he is buried there. After graduating from B. Y. High School in 1935, Vira entered Brigham Young University as a business student. She also studied business at the University of Utah. She became a skillful typist and won all her typing credits. She worked in the school offices part-time as a typist to help finance her education. After her marriage she continued to work until her first child was born. They made their home in San Diego, California, where they purchased a laundry establishment and Vira did the bookkeeping and banking. Vira was diligent in all Church affairs. Her husband was made bishop and her duties multiplied. Both their ward and their stake were building chapels, and the women of the ward sponsored church suppers, bazaars, and other activities to raise money. Vira was one of those foremost in helping. She was also a member of a choir and a chorus. Their laundry establishment installed a new boiler, and when it was being tested, it exploded, killing Eldredge and two other men. This left Vira to carry on the business and care for her home and children. Eldredge was a very outstanding young man, an intelligent leader in all his affairs. Throughout his life he was active in church work: he was a member of the Sunday School superintendency, president of the YMMIA, and at the time of his death was Bishop of the North Park Ward in San Diego. He had a deep respect for authority and was active in defending his convictions. His was a life of service. Vira and Eldredge had three children, all born in San Diego, California: 1. Eileen Mauvette Johnson, b. 1940s. 2. Eldredge Wallace Johnson, b. 1940s. 3. Jeddie Douglas Johnson, b. 16 Apr 1951.
