“Leonard Arrington and the Writing of Mormon History” – Gregory A. Prince, Friends of the Library Lecture @ J. Willard Marriott Library
Sep 11 @ 3:00 pm
“Leonard Arrington and the Writing of Mormon History” -  Gregory A. Prince, Friends of the Library Lecture @ J. Willard Marriott Library |  |  |

Leonard Arrington is considered by many the foremost twentieth-century historian of Mormonism. He played a key role in establishing the Western History Association and the Mormon History Association, and more than a half-century after its publication, his revised doctoral dissertation, Great Basin Kingdom: An Economic History of the Latter-day Saints 1830-1900, remains a standard. But Arrington’s career was not without controversy. Gregory Prince takes an in-depth look at this respected historian and, in telling Arrington’s story, gives readers insight into the workings of the LDS Church in the late 20th century.
