Biographical information complements of Wikipedia

Edwin S. Hinckley (July 21, 1868 – November 15, 1929) was one of only two men to hold the position of counselor to the president of Brigham Young University. He was a prominent educator and geologist.

Hinckley was the son of Ira N. Hinckley and one of his wives, Adelaide. He was born at Cove Fort, Utah. He attended Brigham Young Academy and graduated from both its high school and collegiate divisions. He joined the BYA faculty in 1895.

In 1890 Hinckley married Adeline Henry. During his time at the University of Michigan they took in boarders to make ends meet.

He pursued higher education at the University of Michigan and also served as a part-time Mormon missionary in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He joined the faculty of BYA in 1895. Shortly after this he served for a time as a missionary in Colorado.

From 1904 to 1909, Hinckley served as principal of Brigham Young High School. He also served as counselor to George H. Brimhall and dean of the Church Teachers College. He also was chief geologist at BYU. After retiring from BYU in 1915 he served as superintendent of the state training school in Ogden.

Edwin and Adeline had 13 children.

After Hinckley's death his children established a scholarship in his honor at BYU. Other scholarships were established in his honor at Weber State University, Utah State University and the University of Utah. All these were also established by his children.

B.Z. Kastler

B.Z. Kastler

B.Z. Kastler joined Mountain Fuel Supply Corp., now Questar Corp, in 1952 as the company attorney. He moved on to become the president, and then chairman, of the natural gas-focused energy company. Kastler's years of service with the company are marked by unprecedented customer growth and financial gain.

Kastler was named president of Mountain Fuel in 1972, shortly before the onset of the Arab Oil embargo, which triggered the longest era of price increases in the fossil fuel indutry's history. Mountain Fuel successfully weathered this period and in 1976 when the company was re-organized into Questar Corp., Kastler was named chairman. He served as chairman until 1984.

Kastler strived to embody the principles of service, loyalty, tenacity, and courage in his leadership roles. As the leader of the company, his objective was, "to treat employees well, to succeed financially while maintaining a conservative capital structure, to separate the company's regulated and non-regulated activities, and to be a good corporate citizen." In the course of his tenure with the company all of these objectives were achieved.

Kastler was born in Billlings, Montana in 1920. He was educated at Polytechnic College, the University of Colorado, and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Utah with a doctorate of law. Kastler served on numerous boards over the years ranging from corporations to non-profit organizations, and he has been recognized as an important civic leader of Salt Lake City.
