  • Utah's Military Past, or How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Pentagon, David Rich Lewis, Utah State University, Department of History, Monday, Nov. 7 2005 - 8:30 AM, Room 150D, Salt Palace Convention Center
    Utah's association with the U.S. military has not always been particularly comfortable. From the march of Johnston's Army on Utah during the Utah War of 1857-58, to the proliferation of military installations during and after World War II, to the experience of nuclear and chemical/biological Downwinders, Utahns have maintained a complex and ambiguous relationship with the Pentagon. This presentation offers a historical survey of Utah's experience with the U.S. military, with an eye toward the social and environmental impacts of military installations and operations in the state.

  • Utah Agricultural Research, Past, Present and Future, H. Paul Rasmussen, Utah State University, Monday, Nov. 7 2005 - 8:30 AM, Room 250D, Salt Palace Convention Center
    The research agenda from years past has established the direction of much of today's research. Such research will be discussed as well as those areas under investigation at the present time. Examples of opportunities and challenges will be presented and discussed as they related to the State of Utah, the region, nation and international impacts. Many factors impact the direction of research, some of the factors will be presented and the direction taken by Utah Agricultural Experiment Station researchers.
