Posted: 10/3/2012 | By: Paul Rolly | The Salt Lake Tribune
It’s hard to imagine what Salt Lake City would be like without the influence of Jack Gallivan.
The longtime publisher of The Salt Lake
Tribune, who died Tuesday at age 97 of causes incident to age, played
significant roles in bringing the Utah Jazz and the 2002 Winter Olympics
to Salt Lake City. He also helped raise Utah tourism into a blockbuster
industry and saw the eventual legislative approval of
liquor-by-the-drink, 40 years after his initial impassioned efforts to
make that happen.
