The Wilbur H. Smith Papers (1853-1988) contains mining and geology documents collected by Wilbur H. Smith (1913-1988), a former division geologist for Kennecott Copper Corporation. The collection is divided into four sections and contains essays, publications, maps, correspondence, notes, books, newspaper and magazine articles, geology charts, reports, and pamphlets. The collection contains information on smelting, railroads, and the United States Geological Survey; Bingham, Utah, and the nearby Kennecott Copper mine; prominent miners in Utah; and national and international mining organizations and areas. The collection also contains some of Smith's personal correspondence, information on his employment in Oaxaca, Mexico, and documents resulting from his education at the University of Utah.

The first section, Personal Papers, contains information on Smith's employment in Mexico, his retirement, and home purchase; a typescript of the diary of his father, and correspondence. Also included are memorial addresses for William Russell Anderson, a geologist for Kennecott Copper Corporation; Smith's caricature and appointment books; and University of Utah documents. The correspondence in box 1, dating 1955-1988, includes information on the history of the U.S. mining industry, papers and articles written on Bingham mining activities in Utah, and Smith's collection of publications on mining history, such as Copperfield by Arilla B. Jackson. Correspondence relating to Smith's death is located in box 1, folder 4. Miscellaneous personal documents include expenses, medical prescriptions, and customs information relating to Smith's job in Oaxaca, Mexico; retirement certificates; and titles and deeds from his home purchase in the 1960s. These are located in box 2 and date from 1909-1996. A typescript of his father's diary, 1909-1911; memorial addresses for his Kennecott co-worker, William Anderson, and a caricature of Smith are also located in box 2. Smith's appointment books, dating 1967-1969, are in box 3. His files containing reports, essays, and notes from his University of Utah classes are located in boxes 4-5 and date from 1932-1940.

The second section, Mining and Geology Files, dates from 1871-1985 and is divided into four groups that are discussed in the following paragraphs. These groups focus on Bingham Canyon mining in Utah, international mining, Kennecott Copper Corporation, railroads, smelting, and the United States Geological Survey. They are located in boxes 6-23 and consist of reports, essays, notes, magazine and newspaper articles, correspondence, booklets, and diagrams. Also included are biographies on miners such as Charlie Ney Kenco and United States Geological Survey maps.

The first group in this section contains information on the Bingham Mining District, 1871-1982, and consists mainly of essays and magazine and newspaper articles. Included in boxes 6-8 is information on mining methods and geology, mining companies, and miners associated with Bingham and its history. The Bingham Mining District, formerly called the West Mountain Mining District, began to earn its reputation as a world-renowned mining area with the first discovery of mineral-bearing rock in 1848. A mining district was formed there in 1863 with an order from Colonel Patrick E. Connor, "The Father of Utah Mining" and commander of the Third California Infantry at Fort Douglas, to prospect and develop mines. "The History of Bingham" by T. P. Billings in box 6 contains this and other background information on Bingham. Information on mining engineer Daniel Jackling, mine exploration, ore deposits, and diamond mining is also included in the Bingham files.

The second group contains information on international mining, the Kennecott Copper Corporation, railroads, and smelting in formats similar to the Bingham files in boxes 6-8. The international mining materials, 1917-1974, contain information on mining sites in Africa, Canada, Australia, and areas in South America, mainly in the form of magazine articles, reports and essays. These materials are located in box 9. Materials on the Kennecott Copper Corporation include reports, notes, correspondence, and documents concerned with Division Geologist meetings and Utah Copper Division geologic activities. These materials are located in box 10 and date from 1962-1985. Historic accounts of various United States railroads, such as the Denver and Rio Grande Western, are located in box 11 and date from 1874-1983. Of interest are some 1914 coal tickets and railroad time tables spanning 1883-1976. Materials on smelting consist mainly of magazine articles and essays on the history and contribution of smelters in Utah, particularly Tooele County. These materials date from 1871-1984 and are located in box 12.

The third group consists of United States Geological Survey papers and maps, as well as papers by Smith and other geologists. These materials, dating 1899-1981, contain information on earthquakes, copper deposits, smelting, Kennecott, and geology among other subjects. The United States Geological Survey maps, dating ca. 1932 and ca. 1943, show tunnels, workings, and geologic sections of mines in Utah and are located in boxes 13-14. Smith's interest in geology is apparent in his papers on such subjects as the Bingham mining district; ore deposits, smelters, and faults in Utah; and geologic mapping techniques. These and other papers and publications are located in boxes 15-18 and date from 1880 to 1981. Editions of Kennecott and The Salt Lake Mining Review, an essay on Patrick Edward Connor, and The Utah Copper Story are located in boxes 16-17.

The last group, subject files, dates from 1871-1982. These files contain geology reports, newspaper and magazine articles, correspondence, charts, essays, announcements, and newsletters. Included are materials on mining and geology societies, mining areas in the United States, basin-range structures, computers, gold and silver, nuclear explosives, and sea-floor spreading. These files are located in boxes 19-23. Unique items include art reproductions, postage stamps, and decals commemorating Apollo missions, located in box 22.

The third section of the collection, Mining and Geology Maps, consists mainly of maps but also includes oversize materials. The majority of the maps date from 1853-1982 and show the topography, geology, and development of mines and mining areas in Utah. Also included are United States and international mining area maps with similar cartographic features. The maps show national and international areas containing coal reserves and mineral deposits, as well as United States railroad routes. The Utah, United States, and international maps are located in boxes 24-25. Included in the oversize materials is a national historical atlas, 1966-1968, with information on United States culture, exploration, territories, and elections from the late eighteenth century to 1968; and a set of 1971 colored prints of Indians first published by Thomas L. McKenney between 1836 and 1844. Indian warriors and leaders such as Sequoyah and Black Hawk are represented. The oversize items are located in box 26.

The fourth section, Articles and Miscellaneous Materials, contains newspaper and magazine articles, 1875-1987, with information on ghost towns, nuclear holocaust, pioneers, mines in Utah, geologic rock structures, and transportation. The articles, located in boxes 27-29, are arranged in the subject and date classifications established by Smith. Editions of The Salt Lake Tribune (1936-1941, 1971-1979), The Ogden Standard Examiner (1969), and The Deseret News (1975) are located in box 28. These are special scenic, centennial, United States Bicentennial, and anniversary issues documenting various events in Utah's history. The miscellaneous materials include monographs on Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico; essays and stock certificates; geologic charts, tables, and scales; and magazine articles on early civilization. These materials are located in box 30 and date from 1887-1982.

An appendix of removed documents as well as an index are located at the end of the register.

Wilbur Harry Smith (1913-1988) was a division geologist for the Kennecott Copper Corporation from 1959 to 1978. He began his career as a geologist in his teenage years working for the International Smelting and Refining Plant in Tooele, Utah. This experience led to his job as sampler at Lark Mine for the U. S. Smelting, Refining and Mining Company, ca. 1944, and then to mine exploration work at El Tisur Mines in Oaxaca, Mexico. Most of his years as geologist, however, were spent at Kennecott studying the Oquirrh Mountains west of Salt Lake City, plotting underground and surface geologic maps, and visiting and photographing old smelters.

Wilbur H. Smith was born to Howard Milburn and Jessie Ethel Smith on April 29, 1913, in Tooele, Utah. His father was chief clerk at Anaconda's International Smelter at Tooele. This instilled in Smith a lifelong interest in mines, smelters, railroads, history, and photography. His love of photography would one day lead him to photograph the north end of the Oquirrh Mountains from the open cockpit of an airplane during the 1930s, and to document the demolition of Bingham during the 1960s. These materials were later compiled into a scrapbook entitled "The Death and Burial of Bingham." He took photographs of the machine house in the old Tooele smelter "from every conceivable angle," and also documented, through photography, the geology of several mines and mining districts, such as Bingham and Tooele, Utah.

During the 1930s Smith worked at the International Smelting and Refining Plant in Tooele. One colleague mentions that "there were days of standing on a wooden platform in special big wooden shoes, sprayed by a water hose, re-bricking the floor inside a still-hot sulfurous reverberatory furnace, and of shoveling the black chalcocite dust that was rich Mountain City smelting ore." Smith also attended the University of Utah during the 1930s, putting himself through school with money earned in the mill at Anaconda's Walker Mine in California. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in geology on June 4, 1935. He studied petrology for another two years but did not have enough money to complete a graduate degree.

During World War II Smith found employment as sampler in the High Ore mine at Butte, Montana. After the war he worked as a geologist for thirteen years in the U.S. Smelting, Refining and Mining Company's mines at Lark, Utah. His employment at Lark was interrupted in 1957 with a proposal from the Republic Steel Corporation to do exploration work at El Tisur Mines in Oaxaca, Mexico. He worked a year or so in Mexico and then returned to his native Tooele. His love for Tooele's mining activities, railroad, and smelter are manifest through the countless photographs he took, and in the papers and books he collected on these subjects. Many of these materials are located in the collection.

In 1959 Smith was hired as junior geologist for Kennecott Copper Corporation's Bingham geology department. His geological knowledge of the Bingham district was "invaluable," enabling him to map the underground structures of the Kennecott mine as well as write a history of the district (which was never completed). Many of his articles on the Bingham district, such as "More Jobs For Geology Spur Better Mapping Methods at Bingham Canyon," were published in magazines and guidebooks and are present in the collection. Between 1961 and 1969 Smith was promoted to geologist, then senior geologist, and finally division geologist. During this time he was involved in organizations such as the Utah Geological Society, the Geological Society of America, the Society of Economic Geologists, and the Society of Professional Geologists. He was also a member of the Tooele Museum Board and was involved in a local discussion group of geology professionals and university professors.

Smith retired from Kennecott in 1978 after nineteen years of service. Even after his retirement, however, Smith continued to research the structural geological history of the Oquirrh mountain range and take photographs of smelters and mining areas as a hobby. This was cut short with the advancement of diabetes which confined him to his Holladay apartment, and later to the Tooele County Hospital, where he died in 1988.
