Levi Peterson

Class of 1892? Levi S. Peterson was born in 1874 in Lehi, Utah. His parents, immigrants from Sweden, named him Joseph after the founder of Mormonism. He passed a bucolic childhood in Lehi and graduated from Brigham Young Academy with the equivalent of a modern high school diploma. He married Amanda Andelin, also of Swedish descent, and they became the parents of six children. In 1898, he was called on a church teaching mission to establish a high school curriculum in a stake academy in Snowflake, Arizona. In September of that year, he traveled via the Union Pacific from Provo to Barstow and there caught the Santa Fe for Holbrook, Arizona, the seat of Navajo County. He was conveyed by wagon to Snowflake, thirty miles south. Amanda waited several months for the birth of their first child before she followed. On the thirty mile trek to Snowflake, they passed through only one village, Woodruff, where lived a six-year-old girl who would become his second wife. His road was no more than a wagon track. There were no power lines, no pavements, no billboards, no service stations. Cattle grazed the juniper-covered hills, and it's possible he saw cowboys from the large Hashknife cattle outfit. There were no fences, and the animals of lesser owners mingled with those of the Hashknife outfit on an open range where private and public lands were indistinguishable. In time he came over a final hill and there was Snowflake, an oasis of eighty or ninety houses, mostly of simple pioneer construction. Nearby were fields, green with late crops or yellow with harvested stubble, and beyond them, the verdant, tree-lined course of Silver Creek. Levi Peterson found a place to board and took up the duties of principal and teacher at the academy. Assisted by other teachers, he instituted the first year of high school for a group of young people ranging in age from fourteen to twenty-one. It appears he was instantly popular, having a natural dignity and eloquence and an intuitive moral harmony with a frontier town thirsty for the cultivated graces. From the beginning they called him Professor Peterson and would go on doing so throughout his life, despite the fact that he would take a number of furloughs from teaching. Even now, fifty years after his death, I meet people in Snowflake who still call him Professor Peterson. Not long before Peterson's arrival, the American Indians of the region had become reservation dwellers and wards of the U.S. government, and their primitive culture had already begun to show signs of receding. The majority of them still lived in wickiups, hogans, and rough stone pueblo houses of prehistoric pattern. They hunted, gathered berries and seeds, and practiced primitive agriculture, yet they had also begun to raise sheep and cattle and to depend on rations distributed through governmental agencies. They practiced both traditional and newly learned handicraft, silver smithing, rug weaving, basket making, pottery making, kachina carving, boot and saddle making, and so on. They bought ready-made clothes from traders or sewed colorful shirts, blouses, and skirts from velvet and calico acquired from the same source. Professor Peterson wanted to become an anthropologist. He attended his first Hopi snake dance in August 1899, at either Walpi on First Mesa or Mishongnovi on Second Mesa, where it is known that snake dances were held that year. He traveled by wagon in the company of Homer Bushman, a part-time Mormon missionary to the Indians. This was the first of many times Peterson crossed the Painted Desert. Peterson's interest in anthropology led him, when the term of his teaching mission ended in the spring of 1903, to leave Snowflake and enter the University of California at Berkeley. In 1903 Berkeley was a small, beautiful city uncorrupted by the congestion that makes the Bay Area so unpleasant today. Peterson enrolled in classes during the summer and fall of 1903 and the spring and summer of 1904. His courses included history, English, French, Spanish, German, education, philosophy, botany, mineralogy, geology, and anthropology. His principal instructor and academic adviser was an assistant professor, Alfred L. Kroeber, fresh from Columbia with a Ph.D. taken under a luminary of American anthropology, Franz Boas. Among the earliest excavators retained by Kroeber was Professor Peterson, who engaged in extensive digging in northern Arizona following his unplanned return to that arid region. Early during the fall session of 1904, Peterson withdrew from a full schedule of courses, citing ill health in his petition to the university for honorable dismissal. He and Amanda made plans to return, not to Arizona, but to Utah. On the eve of their departure came a telegram from the stake president in Snowflake, asking Peterson to resume his post as principal and teacher in the academy. So they returned to northern Arizona, abandoning forever all notion of living elsewhere. The summers of 1906, 1907, and 1908 found Professor Peterson excavating prehistoric ruins along the creeks and dry washes of central Navajo County and shipping artifacts and skeletons to Kroeber in California. He surveyed ruins over an area extending as far north as Winslow and as far south as Showlow, concentrating within about a ten-mile radius of Snowflake. The map he drew shows some 40 ruins of varying size and importance, of which he excavated 10. Most of the ruins were near water courses that are now dry and perhaps were intermittent even in the period of occupancy, since primitive agriculture favored sandy wash bottoms which tend to hold subsurface moisture late into the summer. Fallen walls, stoneware, and pottery shards made the ruins easy to find. An array of petroglyphs decorated nearby sandstone cliffs. In 1909, supposing his health would be better if he abandoned the schoolroom and went into ranching, Peterson moved his family onto a homestead at Lakeside, a hamlet situated in a pine forest a mile or two north of the Mogollon Rim. Ironically, the next year finances forced him to return to the classroom, and each weekend for the following four years, until the homestead had been proved up, he commuted the thirty miles between Lakeside and Snowflake on the back of a trotting horse. Once the homestead was secure, Peterson ran for county school superintendent and was elected. He bought a used Model T, and for six years, the family now complete with six children spent winters either in Snowflake or Holbrook and returned each summer to the ranch at Lakeside. Then in August, 1919, came the stunning blow of Amanda's death from typhoid. The next winter Peterson collapsed with the flu and lay prostrate for months in a rented room in Snowflake. The next summer he returned to the ranch, and for a year he and his six children, three of whom were young adults, lived a hand-to-mouth existence on such produce as the stony soil of the ranch offered. Then Peterson was elected to the office of county supervisor and began to correspond with another young lady, who had two daughters by a previous marriage. They married in August of 1924, she at thirty-one and he at fifty. Setting out bravely with an instant family composed of his three younger children and her two, they quickly added five more sons. In 1924 Peterson returned to the classroom in what was now a public high school. His subject was English, rather than the science and math he had formerly taught, and under the stimulus of the grand masters of English and American literature, he underwent a personal renaissance in the humanities, discovering that he himself had some flair for poetry. Conceding to his second wife's wish to live in Snowflake, he deeded the ranch at Lakeside to Amanda's children, and he and his new wife bought a fifty-acre farm near Snowflake. He lived to farm it for only a few years after his retirement from teaching, for he died of cancer in June, 1943. At his funeral, a male quartet sang "The Teacher's Work Is Done," a Mormon hymn first sung at the funeral of Karl G. Maeser, the former president of Brigham Young Academy who had recommended Peterson's call to Arizona. Levi Peterson had taught a total of thirty years, and, that's how people would remember him, as a teacher, a formal medium for the rapid transfer of the rudiments of Euro-American culture to ever new generations of the young and uninformed.

HER OBITUARY: Mary Deane Peterson Gilbert Clark Andrew passed away peacefully on April 13, 2006 at her home overlooking the Provo Temple. Mary Deane was born March 29, 1920, the 9th child and 7th daughter of James Morton Peterson and Louisiana Carie Heppler in Richfield, Utah. In her early years, she attended school in Richfield, Utah, high school in Houston, Texas and Boise, Idaho. In 1941, she graduated from Brigham Young University with a major in physical education. While there, Mary Deane was active in student government as a class officer and president of the social unit O.S. Trovata. In her senior year, Mary Deane married her college sweetheart and captain of the BYU football team, Arthur Gene Gilbert, in the Utah Salt Lake Temple. Art later coached football at Springville High School. He became a Lieutenant JG in the Navy during World War II, during which time they lived on Coronado Island, California where their first son, Paul Ensign Gilbert [BYH Class of 1961], was born. Later they moved to Provo where Art was employed by the BYU football program. A daughter, Lark Gilbert [BYH Class of 1964], was born a few months before her father's death from leukemia June 3, 1947, in Provo, Utah. After her husband's death, Mary Deane taught at Brigham Young High School from 1947 to 1951. On December 20, 1950 she married Dr. Harold Glen Clark in the Arizona Mesa Temple and became mother to his five children and her two children. Her eighth child, Rebecca Clark [BYH Class of 1971], was born in 1953. Mary Deane and her husband were called as the first president and matron of the newly constructed Utah Provo Temple from 1971 to 1976. Mary Deane was the initiator of the temple schedule that is still in use today in temples throughout the world. From 1978 to 1979, they served an eighteen-month diplomatic mission to Sri Lanka. During their service, the LDS Church was officially recognized in that country for the first time, the Book of Mormon was translated into Singhalese, and microfilming of birth and death records was begun. Upon their return, Harold Glen Clark suffered a massive stroke and Mary Deane took care of him faithfully and lovingly for five years. He passed away March 2, 1984. She subsequently married Glenn Andrew in the Utah Provo Temple September 17, 1986. He passed away May 18, 2004.
