Canyon Surveys (1952-53)
Utah State Historical Society

Harry Aleson (1899-1972) was a popular Colorado River guide who made a name for himself in the 1940s with such daredevil feats as running the river in a life preserver. His guided river trips were first-class adventures made possible by his pioneering use of U.S. Navy surplus neoprene boats, which were roomy and virtually unsinkable.

Aleson was also a tireless explorer. The Canyon Surveys document two of his expeditions through the back country of southeastern Utah with his friends, Dick Sprang (the well-known "Batman" illustrator) and his wife Dudy Thomas Sprang. Their journals, photographs, and movies are among the finest exploration documents of Glen Canyon, Grand Gulch, the San Juan River, and the Red Rock Plateau before the advent of off-road vehicle travel. These materials were donated to the Utah State Historical  by Aleson's widow Dorothy Donaldson Keyes.
