OGDEN STANDARD EXAMINER 17 AUG. 1936: OGDEN NATIVE DROWNS AS CAR LEAVES ROAD
Arthur H. Anderson 49 a native of Ogden now employed by the Utah Power & Light company in Logan canyon, was drowned, and his companion, Mrs. Dagna O. Hansen 50 of Hyrum had not yet regained consciousness today as the result of an automobile accident which occurred Saturday night. The car in which the couple were riding plunged into the river 10 miles up Blacksmith Fork canyon, partially submerging. Anderson was downed, but Mrs. Hansen although seriously injured was able to keep her head above water until she was rescued after having been partially submerged for probably three hours. Bill Becker, Richar and Robert Moser, three Ogden youths on a fishing trip in Blacksmith Fork saw the automobile lights under the surface of the water as they drove down the canyon about midnight. They notified Norman Sauveson, Utah Power & light employee at the Blacksmith Fork dam.
The four together with Carl Moon, Hyrum city marshal and Hyrum Weatherstone Cache County deputy sheriff succeeded in raising the car about two a.m. Artificial respiration was employed on Mrs. Hansen. Anderson was dead when extricated. His watch stopped at eleven-fifteen, the probable time of the accident. The accident was the second in Blacksmith Fork canyon this year. The first having occurred July 21 when Kenneth Peterson, 39 of Hyrum was drowned in the waters of the dam. Arthur H. Anderson was born in Ogden, June 10 1887, a son of Andrew and Josephine Nelsen Anderson.
He had been employed by the Utah Power & Light Company for the past 23 years. He was stationed at the Weber canyon plant for several years during which time he lived in Uintah. He was later transferred to the Logan Canyon station where he was operator at the time of his death. Mr. Anderson was active in the LDS church having been a temple worker for many years.
