Shirley, Arthur Coulson
Fish Haven, Idaho

Arthur and Wenonah Shirley

Class of 1923? Arthur Coulson Shirley was born August 15, 1904 and will celebrate his 100th birthday August 15, 1004. He was chosen to be grand marshal of the Raspberry Days parade last week. He was driven by Elder Vaughn J. Featherstone, President of the Logan Temple. He is a life-long resident of Fish Haven, living in part of the home his grandmother and grandfather Shirley lived in which was built of logs in the 1870s. His grandfather, William Henry Shirley was called to come to the valley in 1864. The family first settled in Paris. The crickets, grasshoppers and frost were so bad the family left after a few months. Brigham Young then promised if the family would go back, the weather would be tempered so the people could live in the valley. The promise was fulfilled, in that the family raised crops and prospered. The second time they came, they settled in Fish Haven. Arthur attended elementary school in the two-room log schoolhouse in Fish Haven. There were eight grades and a total of 75 children. The teacher would go from group to group helping them read and do arithmetic. The students helped each other, also. School was held seven months of the year. He boarded with the J.W. Cook family while attending high school at Fielding Academy in Paris. Arthur attended Brigham Young Academy in Provo for two years, then filled a full-time mission in the Western States Mission from 1929-1931. He worked in Colorado, New Mexico and South Dakota, but not with the American Indians. He was one of the extroverted types in the Shirley family. He loved the dances and parties and dated many of the Bear Lake belles before settling down to married life. He married Wenonah Miller from Nephi, Utah, who was teaching school in Laketown. They met at a dance. They were married in Manti July 1, 1934. They drove the Shirley family’s new V-8 Oakland to the Manti temple. The family's first automobile was a 1918 Model T. Ford, They later purchased an Oakland six cylinder. The Oakland was a General Motors car, the predecessor of the Pontiac. Before they married, Wenonah was making $70 a month teaching. She paid $35 for room and board. The last two months of the school year, the school board could not pay their teachers. Wenonah had to wait until later to receive her last paycheck. Therefore, they had no money to get married on. A good neighbor by the name of John Jensen gave Arthur $50 so they could get married. They began their married life with no income. Arthur had been helping his father on the farm, but received no payment for it. He helped his father do carpenter work, building summer homes for people such as the Brownings, and he got some income from that. Times were very hard during the depression, Shirley said. Not only was there an economic depression but there was also a drought that did not end until 1937. “We had a terrible time.” Arthur was a good dairyman, increasing his herd through the coming years. He had registered Guernsey cows which were low maintenance, meaning they didn’t require as much to feed them, but produced a high butterfat content. Arthur sold his herd of dairy cows in 1967 because he couldn’t afford to go to a grade-A dairy operation which was then required. It wasn’t until 1950 Arthur purchased his first tractor, a Ford which he bought from Bear Lake Motor. Arthur later bought beef cattle. He and other ranchers in Fish Haven organized a cattle association. He was the range rider for 45 years for the association. He helped take care of the cattle, taking salt to them and keeping them spread out so they had enough grass to eat and were near water. The 15 families in the association owned a total of about 500 cattle. He also custom baled and raked hay for others in the valley, traveling to Garden City and St. Charles as well as working for his neighbors in Fish Haven. He also raised sheep for several years until his retirement from farming. Arthur has been a leader in the valley most of his life, being involved in community and church activities. He helped organize the Bear Lake County Farm Bureau in 1935 and served on the board of directors for several years. He returned from farming at the age of 74 so he could serve in the Logan LDS temple. He has faithfully served for 26 years, two days of each week. He has been an officiator, a security guard and a receptionist at the temple. Last year he was featured in the Church News along side of Elder Featherstone, recognizing him for his many years of dedicated service at the temple. One time his daughter, Bonnie, brought him a big can of nuts to eat. He hadn’t been feeling well and she said, “You know, Dad, you’re getting old. You probably won’t live too much longer.” He replied, “If that’s the case, then why did you buy me such a big can of nuts?” [News-Examiner [Monpelier, Idaho] August 11, 2004.]

Morris and Maxine Shirts

Faculty & Staff. Fifteenth Principal of BY High School from 1954 to 1956. ~ ~ ~ ~ Dr. Morris A. Shirts served as Fifteenth Principal of Brigham Young High School. His term began in 1954-1955 and ended at the completion of the 1955-1956 academic year. Principal Shirts was known as a rather humane administrator, somewhat lenient and understanding of the student position in his use of discipline. Because of this, he was ultimately more popular with the students than with the faculty. The role that he played in the historic BYH Assembly Crisis of 1955-1956 is a good illustration of this. This event led to the imposition of something akin to martial law at BYH assemblies from the autumn of 1956 to the spring of 1968. Morris A. Shirts was born on April 11, 1922 in Escalante, Utah, to Morris and LoNeta Hall Shirts. He graduated from Escalante High School, then attended Dixie College, before receiving his Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Brigham Young University. In 1952 he received an Ed.D. from Indiana University. He met Dorothy Maxine Baird, of Salt Lake City, in 1943 while they were attending Brigham Young University. Shortly after they met he was called to serve in the U.S. Air Force, where he became a radio operator on B-29s. He experienced many life-threatening situations during the 2 1/2 years he served. In 1945 he and his B-59 crew flew over the Battleship Missouri during the signing of the peace treaty to end World War II. He still maintains contact with several members of that crew. He and Maxine were married October 27, 1945 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They both then continued their educations at BYU. After graduation, he taught math and science at North Sanpete High School, and was audio visual director for the school district. While at Mt. Pleasant, he started the first high school radio station in Utah (KNS). Two of his students went on to significant broadcasting careers in the State of Utah. In 1952, Dr. Shirts was hired by BYU to teach in the Audio Visual Department. He attracted the attention of BYU administrators with his academic and administrative skills, and several years later they chose him to serve as Principal of BY High School. He was well liked and appreciated by the students of BYH during his tenure as Principal. After leaving BYH, Dr. Shirts served as an advisor to the National Teachers College in Teheran, Iran from 1957 to 1959. He came to the two-year College of Southern Utah in 1959, where he was head of the Audio Visual Department, Department Chair and later Dean of the College of Education. He was instrumental in earning state approval to promote CSU to a four-year college. Dr. Shirts retired from his academic career in 1983, but continued as an avid historian, especially about Southern Utah, and was a popular speaker for local and visiting groups. He co-authored, with Paul Dean Proctor, a book about Silver Reef titled Silver, Sinners and Saints: A History of Old Silver Reef, Utah. It is an account of the discovery, disbelief, re-discovery, and development of silver mining in Southern Utah. For three decades he worked on a second book, this one about the settling of Cedar City, titled Trial Furnace: The Story of the Iron Mission. The book was completed by Kathryn Shirts and published by Deseret Book. Morris Shirts authored the article "Mountain Meadows Massacre," in the Utah History Encyclopedia, Allan Kent Powell, ed. (Salt Lake City: University of Utah Press, 1994), pp. 384--85. The Southern Utah University Press published another collaboration, A New Look at Old Sites on Mountain Meadows by Morris A. Shirts and Frances Anne Smeath. Because of his interest in the Mountain Meadows Massacre, Dr. Shirts was a founding member of the Mountain Meadows Monument Committee. Morris spent a great part of his life in volunteer service to boys. He coached baseball for 19 years, part of a commitment to be close to his four sons. He wrote Warm Up For Little League, published in several editions, and Call It Right! with Kent Myers and Klein Rollo, to help Little League baseball umpires. He also wrote Playing With A Football with Thomas Kingsford. He served as Scoutmaster of the Cedar City 7th Ward with as many as 53 Scouts in the troop. An Eagle Scout himself, he patiently helped many boys follow the trail to Eagle, sixteen of them receiving the award in one memorable court of honor. Troop 347 was honored as being one of the outstanding troops in the LDS Church twice during this period. Morris was president of the Cedar Breaks District BSA and vice president of the Utah National Parks Council, BSA. He worked tirelessly for three years to help obtain the Thunder Ridge Scout Camp near Brian Head Ski Resort for the BSA and helped to arrange for the National Guard to put in an access road as a training exercise. He and his assistants were honored with a dinner and tribute by some of these former scouts. For his lifetime of work in Scouting he was honored with the Silver Beaver Award. He actively served in many positions in the LDS Church including counselor in the Cedar West Stake presidency and temple ordinance worker. Morris represented Southern Utah on the Utah Governor Committee for the National Bicentennial in 1976. He received innumerable awards from many organizations. He had many hobbies, including: photography -- he filmed football and basketball games for both BYU and SUU--, and singing, playing guitar and harmonica, constructing bows and arrows for archery hunting, operating a ham radio station, and rebuilding Studebaker's -- he restored at least a dozen over the years. However his most cherished time was spent with his family. He was proud of their achievements and attended as many of their games and activities as possible. Former BYH Principal Morris Alpine Shirts died on January 7, 1997, at his home in Cedar City, Iron County, Utah, at the age of 75. He was survived by his wife, Maxine, of Cedar City; four sons and one daughter: Russell Shirts (Marilyn), St. George, Utah; Randy Shirts (Kathryn), Provo, Utah; Robert Shirts (Janet), Fillmore, Utah; Steve Shirts (Jill) of Cedar City; and Andrea Shirts, also of Cedar City; by 21 grandchildren; two sisters, Nadine Shirts Anderson, Orem, Utah; and Carol Joy Shirts Roundy, Taft, California. A memorial service for Dr. Shirts was held in Cedar City on Saturday, January 11, 1997. He was buried at Cedar City, with military honors. [Thanks to the Deseret News, Friday, January 10, 1997]

The family sincerely thanks them for the help and support they gave Valrie. An informal memorial was held in Bountiful, Utah, Saturday, April 17, 2004. [Deseret News, Wednesday, April 14, 2004.]

He was surrounded by his loved ones in his final hours. He will be missed by all who knew him, but we know that he is at peace and will lovingly await our return to be with him. Rick was born on November 18, 1950 in Provo, Utah to R. Phil and Nelda Moon Shumway. He attended schools in both Provo and Orem, Utah. He served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Sweden from 1969-1971. He said that a day never passed that he did not remember his sweet experiences there. He graduated from BYU with a B.A. in History, an M.A. in Community Education, and also held a post-graduate certificate in Gerontology. He spent his professional career in long-term care administration, and touched the lives of many. He loved the residents, their families and staff that he interacted with, and always viewed his career as an opportunity to serve others. Rick was a dedicated member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He always made the Lord his first priority, and served his Heavenly Father faithfully in numerous capacities. Through each of these opportunities, he impacted many. Whether as a missionary, the Blazer Scout leader, a teacher in Primary, the ward choir director, or a member of the bishopric, he loved each opportunity that he was given. Rick was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He married Carolyn T. Jensen in the Salt Lake Temple for time and all eternity on June 15, 1979. Together they were blessed with three children: Richard Phil Shumway; Cameron Craig Shumway; and Mary Katherine (Katie) Shumway. His family brought him the greatest joys of his life.
