Eudora was born on February 26, 1894 in Provo, Utah. Her parents were Simon Peter Eggertsen and Henrietta Petrea Nielsen [or Nelson]. She died on May 15, 1982 in California. Linton J. Morgan died on April 16, 1951 in Oakland, California. His interment, Oakland, California. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS BIOGRAPHY: Linton Morgan is a well known and well established realtor of Vallejo and is police judge in and for that city, as well as local representative of the federal government in the operation of the affairs of the housing corporation. He is a native of Idaho and was reared in the state of Arizona, where he obtained his initial schooling, and he is a resident of California by choice and inclination, having found conditions here very much to his liking. Mr. Morgan was born in Preston, Idaho, September 21, 1890, and is a son of John and Mary (Linton) Morgan, the former of whom, now deceased, was for many years a prominent figure in educational circles in that state and in Utah. Linton Morgan went to Washington, D. C, when he was about twenty years of age, and there he attended the Georgetown University and later the George Washington Law School. He early became trained for secretarial service and was for some time engaged in Washington as assistant secretary to United States Senator Wolcott of Delaware. Later he was attached to the staff of the secretary of labor and in that department of the federal government's activities rendered service as an assistant to the secretary until 1920, when he was sent to Vallejo as the representative of the department and was made manager of the housing corporation's operations here, a position he still occupies. Upon taking up his residence here Mr. Morgan also embarked in the local realty business and has built up a flourishing connection along that line. In 1925 he was appointed to act as city judge, and he is thus now serving in a dual public capacity. In 1917, at Salt Lake City, Utah, Linton Morgan was united in marriage to Miss Eudora Eggertsen of that state, and they have three children, Dixie, Meline, and John W. Mr. Morgan is a Democrat and is an active and influential member of the Vallejo Kiwanis Club. He also is affiliated with the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, the Improved Order of Red Men and the Fraternal Order of Eagles. [Hunt, Marguerite, and Harry Lawrence Gunn. History of Solano County, California. Chicago: S.J. Clarke Publishing Company, 1926.] ~ ~ ~ ~ Linton was the oldest son of John Morgan and his third wife Mary Ann Linton Morgan. John Morgan died when Linton was three, his brother Harold two, and youngest son Mathias was six weeks old. Mary Ann moved with the three boys to live with her parents in Nephi, Utah. When Lin was twelve years old, his mother remarried David King Udall and moved to the St. Johns, Arizona, area where he and his two younger brothers were raised among the many sons of the Udall family. Linton Morgan attended Brigham Young High School in Provo, Utah. He graduated in 1912. When Lin was about 20 years old, he moved to Washington, D.C., where he attended Georgetown University and later George Washington Law School. When he was 26, he married 22 year old Eudora Eggertsen in the Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. She graduated from Brigham Young High School in 1913, the year after Linton. After his schooling, as explained in his obituary, he took a job with the Department of Labor in Washington, D.C., and in 1920 was sent to Vallejo, California, as head of the U.S. Housing Administration there. When he left that position, he practiced law in Nevada and then returned to California where he established a real estate sales business. Linton died in 1951 in Oakland. His wife Eudora died in 1982.

She was a member of the BYH Peppettes during the 1930-1931 school year. ~ ~ ~ ~ Marie Morgan married David T. Vincent. ~ ~ ~ ~ Author: A Family Album: a Memoir of Andrew B. Morgan and Vivian Rees Morgan, by Marie Morgan Vincent, a granddaughter of Alfred Rees and Emma David Rees. ~ ~ ~ ~ My mother, Vivian Rees Morgan, was born April 15, 1885, at Spanish Fork, Utah. Her mother was 45 years of age. My mother was a twin. The boy was stillborn. When mother was about 83 years of age, I prevailed upon her to tell us her Welsh stories to be recorded on tape. She hesitated to do so, but with coaxing, she finally relented. Besides her famous Welsh stories, she told about her childhood and her mother and father. I have transcribed this history but would like to further elaborate on it. Mother’s oldest sister, Ann Rees Burt, died from diabetes when mother was very small leaving three young boys. Grandmother and Grandfather Rees took these boys into their home to care for them. As these children took a lot of Grandmother’s time, Mother said she felt displaced by these boys in the home with her mother. Consequently, she leaned toward her father and oldest sister, Elizabeth and her husband, Daniel King. She spent a great deal of time with Lizzie and Dan in their home. She also told of spending time with her sister, Hannah, in Eureka, Utah, as she grew up. She attended school in Spanish Fork through the eighth grade and when a young lady attended the Brigham Young Academy in Provo. She took classes in drama and elocution. Mother said she did not work in the millinery shop when she was young, but did the work at home. She tells of making bread when she was so young she had to stand on a stool. In 1900 the first telephone exchange was established by the Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone. Mother’s stint as a telephone operator is recorded in the history of Spanish Fork City on the Rio de Aguas Calientes. “A new switchboard was installed at the office of The Rocky Mountain Bell Company and night service was begun. The operators were Mrs. Mary Rickers (mother’s sister), Miss Vivian Rees, and Miss Ethel Morgan (Daddy’s sister). These girls not only handled any minor repairs that were necessary, but took care of the batteries which provided the current. Women also cleared any outside trouble on the line. They were usually provided with a horse and buggy, and they always carried a stiff fishing pole with them. Since most of the trouble consisted of crossed wires or a tree limb having fallen on the line, the fishing pole was used to uncross the wires or remove the limbs. All of the telephones were of the magneto type, crank instruments that operated on a single wire grounded circuit. To reach the operator the caller turned the crank which generated enough electricity to send the signal to central. Then a call was completed. The crank was turned again in order to signal the operator to “take down” the connection. The operators knew everybody’s number, so telephone directories were not needed (there really weren’t that many subscribers). Calls were usually made by name, not by number. The telephone operator was not an impersonal voice, but usually became a close friend of the telephone users. [Excerpt]

  • Work: (801) 373-8987

Class Unknown ~ Honorary. Marilyn Morley. She attended BYU Training School K through 9. She married Van H. Washburn. ~ ~ ~ ~ My grandmother, Maria Saphrona Jensen Morley attended BYU Academy in the late 1800's. She went on to teach in a little one-room schoolhouse in Moroni. She knew how important education was and inspired my dad to excel in academics, and in 1922, Alonzo John Morley came to BYU. He studied drama, designed stage sets, put on plays, dragged scenery up and down stairs and across the street south to the scene shop. He even cast me at age four, in one of the plays. He met my mom Eloise Stewart Morley in the Little Theater in the college hall building. There was a mirror on the wall. Mom was on the stage giving a talk when both she and my dad glanced in the mirror at the same time. Dad winked at her, she dissolved in laughter. That began their courtship and here I am as a result. Dad changed from drama to speech pathology. He was the first person in the world to obtain a Ph.D. in that field. His office was in the lower southeast corner of the college hall building. There was a small laboratory adjacent to his office. He smoked his own graph paper so he could record the breathing of his students. He was a genuine pioneer in his field. One day dad stepped out of his office for a moment, and when he returned the heavy heating radiator had fallen from the ceiling, and crashed down on his desk exactly where he had been moments before. Whew! What a narrow escape! I attended K-9 at BYU Training School. I remember in second grade being so crushed because I didn't receive as many valentines as others in the class, when I'd given every one a valentine cookie. Our third grade class with teacher Flora Fischer walked to Fred Baird's home to see a honeybee operation. The same teacher scolded me for writing a "love note" to a boy in the class. She also taught us how to draw trees and mountains. I learned to count to 100 that year. Our sixth grade teacher: Mr. Tuttle taught us about the movement of the sun by laying large sheets of paper on the ground, in both November and May. The size of the shadows of George Ballif and I were traced and the summer/winter shadows were compared. The winter shadows were longer than the May ones. I don't know how Mr. Tuttle was able to teach us as there was a constant Thump! Thump! Thump! The Men's Gym classes were held on the third floor above our class. In junior high, Curtis Colvin made my life miserable by teasing me. He'd grab my purse and fling it from the top of the third floor stairs and I'd have to run down three flights of stairs to retrieve it. Also in junior high, I was devastated when I tried out for the part of a pretty, young maiden, and instead was cast as a CAT! My parents convinced me of the importance of supporting actors and that it took "real acting" to play a cat. Mr. Steineckert was our teacher. In college we raced back and forth, up and down between the women's gym, the Grant library, the old J.S. building, down the hill to the education building, up the creaking stairs, engulfed by the foul odors from Uncle Joseph K. Nicholes' chemistry lab to the top floor for art classes with B.F. Larson and Roman Andrus, up and way out to the North Building for Sociology classes with Dr. Reed Bradford and Dr. Wilford Smith. I returned to BYU and got a masters degree in Elementary Education. I was asked to teach a nursery school training class in the basement of the education building. I had enjoyed the student teachers. The toilet was in the classroom up on a pedestal with stairs leading up to it. No privacy. I had a couple of my own kids who didn't get along. They attended counseling services in the academy building. Much later, my daughter Lindy Fonoimoana Carlson took Special Ed. Classes in the basement and first floor of the Education building in 1973-75. She remembers that one of her best teachers was a blind gentleman. She graduated in 1975, was married three days later in the Manti Temple, moved to Tahiti, raised five children, and now operates a childcare center there. Presently I have a grandchild, Masina Marie Tutor, who is starting her freshman year, and will occasionally use the "new library" at Academy Square. Watching the deterioration of my old school was devastating. Though I lived in Hawaii until 1989, on trips back here I wrote letters to the editor, campaigned, passed out flyers, attended meetings, raked leaves, participated in the Haunted House, swept out rooms, made monetary contributions, and prayed I'd win the sweepstakes so I could help save the buildings. I hoped all four could be saved but finally had to be satisfied with the Education Building, so now this marvelous building restoration. is the result of the efforts of all of us who worked to save it.
