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.
