President Eisenhower stopped in Salt Lake to speak in the Tabernacle as a presidential candidate in 1952. Several newspapers, including the Toledo Blade, shared excerpts of his speech:

“Let no one out of great fear and little faith say that America is finished; that the days of our pioneering are ended. This is the time to go on—in America’s historic pilgrimage—to make this land of promise more and more a promised land.”
