For many years, the paleontology program at Brigham Young University revolved almost entirely around one man, “Dinosaur Jim” Jensen, a prolific field researcher with a talent for finding fossils. In 1976, the University built a museum to house his huge collection (over 120 tons of fossils) which had previously been stored underneath the nearby football stadium, and the resulting BYU Museum of Paleontology displays many of those finds.
