Biography Elbert Porter
Elbert Porter is a native son of the area in southern Utah called Long
Valley. This early Utah settlement included Orderville and Mount Carmel
where Elbert Porter was born in 1917 and continued to live until he was
hired to join the sculpture team at the University of Utah.
Porter's painting of Orderville (Daughters of Utah Pioneers) is
quite well known locally as a topographical study of that early United
Order settlement in southern Utah; so are his sculptural dinosaurs.
Between 1955-1980 Porter sculpted the sculpture at the Dinosaur Museum,
Vernal Utah. At the Natural History State Park Museum in Vernal,
visitors stroll through time--historic, prehistoric and geologic.
