Return to the Alphabetical List of All Online Finding Aids

Processed by: Benjamin Clark, April 2006

Biographical Note:

Howard Warren Balsley was born 7 December 1886 in Pennsylvania. His family moved to Seymour, Indiana when he was seven years of age, where he lived until the age of eighteen. He then moved with his family to Indianapolis in search of employment. After living in Indianapolis for four years and not having much luck finding a job, he went to Moab, Utah. In 1912 he met and married Jessie Trout. The couple would eventually have two children together. Soon Balsley became involved in the lucrative mining business, which sparked a lifelong interest in uranium exploitation. Balsley’s wife died in 1952, but he went on to live for another thirty years in Moab, where he died at the age of ninety-five.
