Your Utah Quiz (Jan. 4) states the University of Deseret, 1850, is "the oldest university west of the Mississippi." This honor actually belongs to the University of Missouri at Columbia, which was founded in 1839, some 11 years before Deseret. The small monument at 200 North and West Temple is in error.

Also, the monument on the southwest corner of the Conference Center honoring the first president of the LDS Primary has an error. Louie B. Felt's maiden name was not "Boulton" but "Bouton." Since it's difficult to change something once it's set in stone, better research is needed.
