A Glimpse of Prince Utah, the Elephant

I came across this photo of Prince Utah while going through the large number of Hogle Zoo images in the Utah Division of State History’s digital collections,

This photo is of the now-demolished Lion House as it appeared in 1945, around the time it was opened. Way in the back is the taxidermy form of Prince Utah. This is the only photo I have seen of Prince Utah after he died in 1919.

Prince Utah was the only offspring of Princess Alice that lived for any significant amount of time. The two elephants were the star of the zoo when it was located in Liberty Park
