  • Biographical / Historical

    Dixie State University was established in 1911 as the St. George Stake Academy with the original campus located on the northwest corner of Main Street and 100 South in Saint George, Utah. The original building for the campus remains, and is currently the St. George Children’s Museum. The name for St. George Stake Academy changed two years after its creation to Dixie Academy in 1913 and kept the name until 1916. The name changed again to Dixie Normal College during 1916-1923. The photographs in collection bridge the period of the name change from Dixie Academy to Dixie Normal College. The population of St. George was 1,769 in 1910 and 2,271 in 1920. The first graduating class of St. George Stake Academy was in 1913 with thirteen students.
