Utah Trivia Thursday- May 15, 2008

Beaver, Beaver County, Utah is the birthplace of two famous Americans.

The first was Robert LeRoy Parker, born April 13, 1866. You might know him better as Butch Cassidy, the notorious western outlaw who teamed up with Harry Longabaugh, the Sundance Kid to lead the Wild Bunch.

The other was Philo T. Farnsworth, born August 19, 1906. He was the inventor of the first completely electronic television set. Without him, you may not be sitting back in your easy chair watching a football, baseball or basketball game. All hail Philo!
