Alice L. Reynolds and Brigham Young University
Brigham Young University is a private university that seeks to develop students of faith, intellect and character who have the skills and the desire to continuing learning and to serve others throughout their lives. Tracing its roots to Utah’s rich pioneer heritage and to Brigham Young Academy, the original school established in 1875, the university continues to provide an outstanding education in an atmosphere consistent with the ideals and principles of its sponsor, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Alice Louise Reynolds was a professor of English at Brigham Young University during the early 20th Century. She inspired a love of the English language in many of her students and her remarkable efforts on behalf of the university’s library are still felt today. Her impact on Brigham Young University can be uncovered through many of the collections held in the University Archives.
