Each Friday, The Salt Lake Tribune presents historic images in a special series called A Look Back. This week's installment features photos of Major John Wesley Powell. Powell was a soldier who lost his arm in the Civil War, a geology professor, American Indian expert, western conservation advocate, and an explorer who's most famous expeditions were on the Green and Colorado Rivers into the Grand Canyon in 1870.
Every gallery of the series is available at www.sltrib.com/topics/lookback. Here is a sampling:
