Ever won­der about the Daugh­ters of the Utah Pioneers or­ga­ni­za­tion? It was or­ga­nized on April 1, 1901. The con­sti­tu­tion of DUP states that the pur­pose of the or­ga­ni­za­tion is “to per­pet­u­ate the names and achieve­ments of the men, women and chil­dren who were the pioneers in found­ing this com­mon­wealth by pre­serv­ing old land­marks, mark­ing his­tor­i­cal places, col­lect­ing ar­ti­facts and his­to­ries, es­tab­lish­ing a li­brary of his­tor­i­cal mat­ter and se­cur­ing manuscripts, pho­to­graphs, maps, and all such data as shall aid in per­fect­ing a record of the Utah pioneers.”
