The first published work by Dale Morgan is this W.P.A. guide. "Morgan's first monographic work was actually his second completed Sketch. The sketch for Beaver County was written first (a dated final draft is in the W.P.A. records at the Utah State Historical Society) but the Inventory was never published. That work served as the standard for the rest of the State's county historical sketches." - Saunders 1.
"Tooele County, more distinctly than most counties, is rooted in the geological past. the existence and manner of disappearance of a Pleistocene lake in the Great Basin so deeply affected the Tooele County topography that the land and the society it bears remain closely bound by the prehistoric circumstances." - p.4.
