About the Records

This series contains two books compiled by the school district to document and commemorate the erection of the School Children's Constitution and Flag Monument on the west side of Washington Square in front of the Salt Lake City and County Building. The monument was completed in 1937 and included a flag pole with a sculpture of two children with the United States Constitution standing at the base, and one of the children pointing up toward the flag. School children donated money to fund the monument and local children acted as models for the sculpture. In 1936 each school in the city compiled a list of students and what occupation each aspired to when they grew up. These lists were sealed in a time capsule in the monument when it was dedicated in 1937.
