Joe Hill Lecture Series, Part 1
Category(ies) No Categories
In November 1915, Joe Hill was killed by a firing squad after being convicted of killing Salt Lake City grocer John Morrison. The execution remains controversial with many aspects of the case still shrouded in mystery. One of Hill’s staunchest defenders was a University of Utah professor named Virginia Snow Stephen. She was the daughter of LDS Church President Lorenzo Snow and worked on many labor related causes. The Salt Lake Tribune’s Jeremy Harmon will discuss local reaction to her role in Hill’s defense and her contention that local police may have been actively intimidating Hill’s supporters to remain silent.
