Notes:  Herbert Pyne Ungricht was born 21 Sep 1917 in Sunnyside, Carbon, Utah.  He was the fifh of six children of John Ungricht and Lillie Edna Arrowsmith.  His older siblings were Lillie Mae, born in 1906; John William, born in 1909; Annie Madeline, born in 1911, died in 1912; and Samuel Laverne, born in 1914.  His younger sister was Edna Merlene, born in 1919.
In the 1920 U.S. census, Herbert was living with his family in a rented home in Sunnyside, Carbon, Utah.  His father John was described as a miner in a coal mine.  The children were May L., 13, John W., 11, Samuel L., 6, Herbert, 2, and an unnamed baby daughter, less than 1 month old.  The older three children attended school.

In the 1930 U.S. census, Herbert was living with his family in a census precinct named Rolapp, Carbon, Utah.  [The Rolapp Mine was 38 miles north west of Sunnyside, Utah.]  They were renting their home for $20.00 per month, and had a radio set.  His father John was a mine foreman for the coal mine.  The children at home were Lillie May, 22, Vern, 16, Herbert, 12, and Merlene, 10.  The younger three children attended school.

About 1934, the family moved to the Mill Creek area, just south of Salt Lake City.  Herbert attended Granite High School, Salt Lake City, Utah.  He is pictured as a Junior in 1935 and Senior in 1936 in the school's yearbook, the Granitian.  He is listed at his parent's address, 3575 37th East in the 1936 Salt Lake City, City Directory as a student.  He went on to the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, and is pictured in the 1939 Utonian yearbook as a lower classman, and as a member of Sigma Pi. In the 1940 U.S. census, Herbert was living with his family at 3575 So. 27th East St., East Mill Creek (unincorporated), Salt Lake, Utah.  They owned their home, valued at $3,000.  His father John was a coal miner.  The children at home were May, 32, 4 years of high school; Herbert, 22, 3 years of college; and Merlene, 19, 2 years of college.  Herbert was an attendant at a gas station, and had earned $500. in the prior year.  Both Herbert and Merlene attended school.

Herbert registered for the draft in 1940.  He was president of his own company, the Utah Carrot Products Co., and was described as 5'5", 140 lbs, light complexion, with blue eyes and blond hair.  He enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps at Fort Douglas, Utah on 25 Oct 1941, and served during the war as a pilot.  In March 1943, as a Second Lieutenant, he was a navigation instructor at the Army air forces navigation school in San Marcos, Texas.  In September 1943 he was promoted to First Lieutenant.  At the time of his discharge in November 1945, he was a Captain.

Herbert returned to school, graduating from the University of Utah.  He received his doctorate of medicine from the Sterling Hall of Medicine at Yale University.  He did his internship at the Highland Alameda Hospital in Oakland, California.  It was here that he met his future wife, Barbara Robison, who was doing her internship as a dietetic.

Herbert married Barbara Robison on 23 Jul 1952 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah.  After a honeymoon at Lake Louise in Canada, they made their home in East Mill Creek at 3569 27th East, Salt Lake City, Utah.  Here they raised six children.  Herbert specialized in ophthalmology, and practiced until he was 82.  His offices were at 508 E S Temple R A33, Salt Lake City, Utah.  He also volunteered time to teach doctors-in-training at the University of Utah College of Medicine.  He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
