HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE COLLECTION This
portrait of George Dewey Clyde (1957-1965) shows the Utah Governor
holding the plans for the Glen Canyon Dam under his arm, and a vibrant
Utah landscape (complete with dam) in the background. Governor Clyde was
a civil engineer, served as the state's water conservator, and oversaw
the completion of the Glen Canyon Dam during his tenure. Upon leaving
office, governors commission portraits of themselves for the State Fine Art Collection. They are usually reflections of the governor's personal passions and achievements.
